This was a nice and quaint place to visit to pass a few hours in the day. It's clean and well kept. They have some interesting things to check out that's specific to this region. There is also a live whimsical/reptile exhibit. (Check the hours ) Keep in mind, the animal exhibit does not observe the same operational hours as the museum. Worth a visit.
I was visiting California from Derby. England. My friend and I saw the sign for this museum. I love visiting these places because as they say use them or lose them. I was very impressed by the open clean airy spaces and the very varied exhibits. The people who run the museum were friendly and informative. I recommend this museum.
