It was a drive for us to go visit, but a cool place to come and check out. Lots of interesting mental health history to soak up.

Psychiatric Museum and several others with one admission and a very interesting collection. Admission is very reasonable. Parking on site. Four floors of exhibits in two buildings. Materials presented very well. Native American , dolls, war exhibits, black archives and more. Signage from I-29 is very good.
