  • Highly recommend for insights of early living and family life into one of the pioneers in the area. Extremely interesting background on development of this family’s wealth and prominence.

  • Had a lovely time touring the museum and the Oliver Mansion. Our tour guide was very informative. The Mansion and Garden were absolutely spectacular. A must see!
  • This museum is a decent way to spend a bit of time. The downstairs portion was more interesting to me, with the highlight being a room about the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League. The rest of the area includes a few historical exhibits, a bunch of objects made in the area, and then another group ordered by function. Some on the main level included wedding dresses, international ties at Notre Dame, and various letters, which I’m sure someone else would enjoy but wasn’t for me. Not bad for a little museum.
