Wonderful Museum and for free!! Way bigger on the inside than I thought on the outside. They have a rotating exhibition space that is wonderful. Every space has a tour guide who will help if need be, and there bathrooms are very very clean and nice! Definitely a stop for tourists or locals alike!
What a wonderful collection! Why haven't I come in the past? Very detailed history of the city with some exhibit that are permanent, others rotating. I came recently for the 50 year celebration of Tennessee Williams Streetcar Named Desire for the six faces of Blanche and it was wonderful. All of the employees were wonderful and full of information that they were more than happy to share freely with anyone who wants to know. I will be back in the future!
