If you have young girls with you this is a great inspirational museum. One can zip through this small museum and learn enough in 20-30 minutes to be inspired!

Wanted to stop here many times and visit the Memorial Museum & park to honor Babe Zaharias. No doubt one of the all time female greats in the sporting world. Excelling at the 1932 Olympics earning goal medals in several events. Later she became number one golfer with 10 LPGA titles to her credit. She was well known to me when I was a teenager Hoping to tour inside of Museum but arrived too soon before Museum opened. The adjoining park is named after her. An airplane is on static display, a picnic pavilion is on the grounds & sports playgrounds provided. Disappointed that the park grounds were not better landscaped & maintained. Nothing distinct to set off the life of Babe except the Memorial Museum.
I absolutely loved it, and the staff was super helpful and informative. She also took time to go through and mark places to bring kids where its fun and educational.
