Wonderful tour for all ages. We enjoyed it very much and look forward to going again. A gift store has wonderful posters and memorabilia. The volunteers were friendly, knowledgeable and willing to share local info on restaurants and wineries/micro breweries.

We have taken our grandson several time to the museum. Each time something different he notices. It is nice to have a place that children/grandchildren can enjoy and it is educational.

I believe there are some available but would check first. Very wide open museum and overall mobility is very easy- elevator, wide corridors, etc.

admission is "free" until late February 2017, but the museum is run on donations, all the Workers there are voulenteers, so it would be uncouth to not offer some monetary appreciation

Yes- Entry by donation. Throw a 10 or 20 in. People donate their time to make it what it is.
