  • The best historical museum we have ever been to. Jim was hands down the best tour guide ever!! I recommend this place to everyone of all ages. It's huge so make sure you give yourself plenty of time.
  • 10 OUT OF 10. By far some of the greatest people I've ever met. My car broke down and they didn't hesitate to help at all. I had the greatest experience with them & the museum was SO well kept and they all knew so much history, I had a great time. THANK YOU!!!!
