I love the city museum and think it is an AWESOME place! Being made of so many recycled materials is very intriguing to me. Here are a few warnings if you’ve never been... This is not a typical museum. It is meant to be interactive...More

This place was so unique and interactive. 3 generations visited, ages 67-2, lots of places to sit and observe if not participating.
