  • This is a spend the day to see all the items in the museum place. We got the membership as it was more economical to visit the castle and museum. Plus we are def going to come back to see what we missed. The docent Gloria made our time in the museum that much more enjoyable. Be sure to say hi if you see her and ask questions.
  • Spectacular! A visual history of the tools that built America. Treat yourself to this gem and then go to the tile store and castle. This place will blow your mind! Be sure to go all the way to the top!
