It was hard to believe at first, but this is genuinely the location of a great collection of Shakespeare library, costumes, sets, images, etc. The curator was very helpful and friendly, and even made it fun for the kids. Thanks for a fun afternoon!

First time visitor to this establishment and it was really fascinating! Not only is it a gift shop, it houses a huge treasury of items from Shakespeare's works. The proprietor, Terry, is so knowledgeable and very pleasant.

Highly recommend stopping by and seeing all of the Shakespeare props, costumes, photos, books and more. Kids and teens love dressing up. Great place to get supplies for teachers and homeschooling.
