  • Museum has a wide variety of artifacts that are generally well organized. Probably a bit too much signage. Didn't need that much detail for the average visitor. My granddaughter, who loves museums and is generally very patient, grew bored quickly. Found myself skimming and summarizing far to often. The house was closed when we were there, so we didn't get to st that half.
  • Fantastic place for history bluffs on a rainy day. Full of great history of the area, with knowledgable and helpful staff. Found it very interesting.
