Lots of things to see even in the small space. The staff is nice and museum seems well kept. The visiting exhibit and permanent exhibit was perfect for a 20 minute stop. I'd definitely recommend this place if you're looking for an interesting stop along your I-70 route.
Nice museum. My grandson enjoys seeing the old cameras and they have a rotating display in the front area. Lots of local stuff to see.
