Lauren Rogers Museum of Art reviews
This museum is absolutely filled with history ! George Bassi is a phenomenal director who gave us a tour and explained the history of the museum (which originally was a library!) and even the history of some of the surrounding homes ! My daughter loves this museum and our favorite thing about it is that it's FREE !
If you live around the area, passing through, or live far away and are looking for something to do (this was my case) then definitely come here! It’s very calming and they have great exhibits. I went for the Leonardo DaVinci exhibit they were showcasing and just loved it!
