  • You can never get to absorb everything in this building with just one visit. The History here is so well displayed. I see something different every time i visit. Put it on your list of things to do.

  • A nice, little museum with a great bottle collection. It's free but they appreciate donations. The docent even got us a spot in a nearby distillery tour. Well worth a visit.
  • Lots of artifacts, great collection. Takes only about an hour. Small gift shop with unique items
