  • Even if you aren’t an art fan, you will find lots of treasures to love here! There were weathervanes, ceramics, tobacco store statues, an unusual carrousel and much more! Kids will love this place! Prepare for hours of fun!
  • Attended a great presentation in the museum's auditorium of The re-building of Charity, the first black woman institutionalized in the country's first mental hospital. I forget the actress' name, she was fantastic!
