  • Nice little museum. Could have had more content, especially with the next-door "science museum" which is really complementary to this one. Staff was amazingly friendly and welcoming, was worth it.
  • I volunteered here years ago and loved being able to share the city's history with guests. I returned today and found a completely new interior with brand new exhibits. I was shocked! You can tell they worked hard to remodel the museum, though. It's easy to go through with tons of facts about the area. I really enjoyed it and I'm glad to see it doing it well so many years later. I highly recommend it!
