It took us nearly a full day to few all the exhibits in the museum. The new museum is very well stocked and well explained. Well worth the trip. more »
Small, but jam-packed museum full of interesting artifacts. Also a live stage production, featuring a Q and A session with George Washington! Very informative.
Great programs in the Hennage Auditorium. New museum being built behind this one. Take a tour with a guide to really get the inside scoop on these precious items.
