  • Very good lecture. Only complaint is tbe museum was over crowded. People were sitting on floor and against. Don't know what legal capacity is but it had to be over that at this lecture.
  • Wonderful and unique presentation focused on area history. I highly recommend this museum to Gainesville residents and visitors!
