  • No, this isn't a review of ghost lore... My daughter and I signed up as independent Girl Scouts a few years ago and quickly found the administration to be relatively stifling and the organization of events and gatherings was fairly lackluster. And needlessly said, as a result, participation is almost non-existent. We tried to visit our council museum one time, and they said my daughter (6) was too young to appreciate the exhibits; and even if she wanted to try it, they didn't allow very small children (2) on the property. So, they wouldn't even let us in after making a 4 hour round trip to see the place.
  • My tour guide was very funny and knowledgeable. She answered all my questions and kept things interesting. I love the interactive exhibit at the end of the tour and the canvases on display.
