This is a tiny museum but can have interesting exhibits at times. Check for free days, Friday is when we go. The best part of it is probably Claire's cafe - really lovely restaurant on the premises with seating in a lovely ouotdoor environment.

It is very relaxing to stroll through this museum. It's is small and "current" exhibits tend to "take over", but it's "our" museum and we are proud of it. The "attached" Clair's is a great place for lunch and Happy Hour on Thursdays. Check their...More
