This is place is fascinating. It has countless cool items. Everything is meticulously organized. You may find, all kinds of clocks, maps, pictures, and music and record players. The place is truly magical. But the best part is having the guidance of Mr. Ingram. He is so knowledgeable and pleasant, even more, he is inspiring. My kids really enjoyed this unforgettable visit.
I absolutely love the collection of timepieces, transits, and the zillions of salt and pepper shakers! The owners of these collections have taken great care and time (pardon the pun) to put together a most amazing museum. I will continue to visit as often as I can, and encourage everyone to go - it is an education that transcends "time"...
