  • The artwork in this place is incredible!! The staff are super friendly but there’s not much there. We were expecting to be there for several hrs but it only took a little over an hour to go through.
  • Our Cub Scout pack was in for a visit tonight. Really cool place! The scouts loved it! A HUGE thank you to Evan! He was so nice and the only staff member to interact with the scouts! He really captured their attention and was so great with them!
