The exhibits are educational,interesting and informative. The price charged is very reasonable. The Museum is clean well lighted and people are available to answer questions. We especially enjoyed a recent exhibit of Egypt artifacts of the Valley of the Kings.

For a local museum, this place is capable of attracting top notch displays. They change out at a reasonable frequency and you're on to the next excellent display. If you have the time, this is a place to go.
