  • Just went to the museum for a quick bite. The smorgasbord was great. Salmon smoked perfectly. The best pickled egg was a great surprise. I will definitely be going back the Freya Cafe.
  • Great place with adequate and reasonably priced parking ($2/hr). Veterans get a buy-one-get-one-free admission ticket discount, which isn't listed online for some reason. I wanted to see more historical artifacts on exhibit, but this time that room was showing a photographer's work. Still worth the time and money.
