Very nice staff and clean environment. Took my boys, 6.5 yrs old and 3.5 yrs old, walking through and a staff member came and answered all the questions they had. Love that they change some of the exhibits too!! Helps provide good history for the area and has a couple memorabilia from when my mother-in-law and husband were children. Makes it more personal and community based.
Beautiful location and performance venue for my niece & sister in law's recital! Lots of history & adorable gift shop. Clean restrooms always a plus!
