  • Amazing history and display setup. If you ever get to visit St Joseph Missouri, you have to visit this place. The price of entrance was $8 per person. They had a cute little gift shop with different things you could purchase.
  • What an incredibly unique and interesting place! I was expecting something smaller, but this is four floors of relics and stories from the history of psychiatric care in general as well as the history of this specific psychiatric museum. Definitely worth the price of admission, and I highly recommend it to everyone!
