This museum goes on and on, a map is definitely necessary or in my case a local guide who knew the exhibits. Don't miss The Boiler Room outside the main building. And the new AOK Berkshire Bbq on the grounds is delicious Th-Mon. Very historic...More

Twenty dollars, confusing, two interesting exhibits. Lots of empty space. More of a nouveau museum. The best part was Ramunti's Pizza, who had a bartender whose brother I met elsewhere coincidentally and has very good pizza. I believe $15.00 is appropriate entrance fee IMHO. This...More
