  • This place is great if you are interested in antique collection and history. The gift shop is located inside which is nice since there isn't that many other options.  more »
  • Beautiful museum with the colonial flair. Interesting. Loved the Christimas tree. Can't wait to go back.  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.
