Small, intimate museum. Not really any famous works of art, but a nice collection for a small town. Best of all, it's FREE.

We had never been before, so we just wandered in (free). When we were there, there were many beautiful costumes from the Longview Ballet featured. Very interesting. Apparently, the displays change monthly.

We stopped by not expecting much. To our pleasant surprise we really enjoyed our time. We can not wait to go back again. There is no charge to enter, but donations are accepted. I defiantly suggest that you stop by.

The exhibit rooms are large and nicely laid out. There are chairs so you can sit and contemplate the pictures/sculptures. The building is quiet and small enough that you can see the exhibits in a short visit, or relax and stay a while.
