  • A gem of a museum. I visited without expectations and was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the exhibits. One, dedicated to the RCA plant in Bloomington was an eye opener, flawlessly conceived and very didactical and entertaining at the same time. The permanent rooms are also very interesting. Shout out to the Museum shop, lovingly curated. Highly recommended.
