Wish I would have taken mare pictures! This is definitely a stop if you are anywhere in the area. We drove over from our vacation in Holland and so glad we did. The whole family enjoyed it and the carousel was so pretty. Especially loved the old town area, retro games, and fashion exhibit
The public museum is a great place for families to go and learn but have fun at the same time! The exhibits are great and educational, the workers are nice, they even complimented me on my shirt, and it has an overall nice atmosphere! I recommend!
