We were disappointed that it was closed today BUT it looks like a great place. The gentleman that was at the reception desk was so friendly. We can't wait to visit
Thursdays you can visit the museum for free! No excuses, go have an awesome time with your family and/or friends. There it's also a section with art supplies where you can create art with your children/grandchildren! Definitely worth visiting!
