There are many things under one roof. The permanent history collection is very well done leading the visitor through the history of the area. They also bring in temporary exhibits. These are always changing and lead to a different experience each time you visit. I almost feel like this is a well kept secret! This museum has great art on display, and fun kids area, and more. I will have to go back to experience it all. I was very impressed that a museum with no admission fee was so wonderful! I can't wait to go back and take my daughter.
A very nice museum. It's better than many other towns with museums. Has a little film and lots of exhibits. Neat walking grounds too.
