This museum had massive flood damage and they were in the process of rebuilding. The exhibits they had available to see were so interesting that next year we are making a point when we drive to see our son and his family on the east coast we are zigzagging back to see more of the exhibits completed again. Plan on at least 2 hours to see the limited exhibits available, plan on much longer when it is back to before flood exhibits. This is a must see!
This is the best museum we’ve visited in a long time. It was unbelievably diverse and well laid out. Going in, was expecting a small town collection. Do not miss this if you are anywhere near, and budget a good amount of time. The suggested donation of $5 was a bargain.
