  • A hidden gem that more people need to know about! They have original documents from crazy historical events. It's free and if you're a nerd you'll spend a few hours reading everything. Right across the street from Wright Park, you can take a nice walk then feed your brain by reading Beethoven's 9th symphony notes or French Revolution documents and more. Best suited for high school students and adults - little kids would be rather bored by documents.
  • Museum full of historical documents and historical document reproductions! It's one of 6 such museums, and has a vast and enviable collection. The exhibits cycle every 6 weeks or so, so there's always going to be something new to look at. Really fascinating and fun for any history buff!
