  • 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. Price is affordable and you can take your time and spend as little, or as long, as you want. It's crazy, if not a little frightening, to see what was once thought as therapy back in the day. Definitely an interesting piece of history to be seen here.
  • 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.
