This small but attractive museum located on First Street offers an interesting collection of local and regional art. Admission is free and it's well worth a visit.

Well staffed with knowledgeable docents, my wife and I certainly enjoyed seeing the featured artist and other items from their permanent collection. I would certainly come again.

There were several artists featured in the small space. We were pleasantly surprised at the diversity of medium (paintings, photos, sculptures) and the annotations for each item. There was also non-themed exhibits that entertained our group of 2 adults and 2 children. Even thought the...More
