  • The museum is okay, but definitely check out the buildings set up set up to look at how homes around here used to look inside. It is an interesting expiriance.
  • Absolutely loved this museum. Came here as a chaperone on a field trip and it was amazing! Loved how each group was divided and taken to a different area and given such thorough tour. Will definitely be returning here with family.
