  • On one particular weekend I was searching for things to do and see. I have always enjoyed watching the movie, regardless of age, and I decided to stop by to see this museum. If I remember correctly, the building used to be some kind of storage place or shop for the local school district. Eventually it was turned into a museum and run by a very pleasant lady who, herself, is a fan of the novel and movie. I truly enjoyed my time here even though it is a small museum. There were some displays that did not interest me, but overall, I found it interesting. I truly enjoyed speaking with the lady and I learned a lot.
  • There is no way to describe the experience of visiting this well-kept museum. A COMPLETE collection of ALL things GWTW! LARGE, lighted, detailed doll house. GWTW posters, books, records, costumes, theater programs, photos, movie props, history. Just a really nice experience on a quiet street. This collection belongs to one woman who has carefully amassed it all, and is available to answer any questions.
