  • I am the mother of five adult sons and that's the age group that honestly works best with this location. We took a day off to visit the museum, and I think it was well worth it. So many interesting things to look at. To be honest It's really a bit dated and needs to have some work done but the collection is not done by professionals like most museums. It's the private collection of Harold Warp, and he did a fantastic job of collecting and displaying so much interesting stuff! They were working on the roof of one of the buildings and I hope they are able to keep working on updating. It was a great way to spend the day with my family.
  • Very nice day. The temperature was perfect and the displays were awesome. It wasn't crowded but they were doing some much needed renovations. They displays are just fabulous and the wide array of objects are out of sight......
