Stopped by during the Waterfowl Festival and found this small, but updated museum to be a new and wonderful discovery. The exhibits were excellent, with wonderfully curated artifacts, and excellent explanations. There are large touch screens that make wonderful use of old photos and new...More

They change the exhibits frequently. This is a worthy organization to support. There is a parking lot along the side of the building. There is a really nice garden behind the museum to stroll through.
