  • The displays in this museum are all temporary, and this September they were of Oliver Jeffer's book illustrations. Because the displays rotate on a seasonal basis, there's always something new to see....  more »

  • Warm, friendly, knowledgeable vollunteer staff at front door, free admission and beautiful art. A great place to take preschool and elementary school children to see visual art and kids books. Wonderful gift store as well sells the books that are displayed on the walls. Fun place to learn about authors of children's literature. Not crowded.
  • The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars, is that it's rather small. However, it is quite nice. On Saturdays, they have a Family Art Activity(1-4), it's free and fun. My daughter absolutely loves the entire place, and exclaims loudly when we pass it. You should definitely check it out. We'll likely end up as Saturday regulars.
