  • The museum expansion was done very well and flows easier now. They are still working on installing all the new exhibits but it is worth a visit now and in the future.  more »
  • We visited the museum on day that called for rain and just to tour and view all the exhibits took most of the day. Everything has a story and all is very interesting. Well worth the trip.  more »

  • A first class museum with multiple different collections and history presentations. Could spend many days here. Wish the cafetetia/coffee shop had better options .
  • Maybe our expectations were too high but aside from some beautiful furniture I didn't get excited. Winterthur has better examples and there were renovations everywhere. Signage was abysmal. I don't think I will return.
