Very nice museum in a fabulous building. Lots of history about the city and the general area. Natural as well as cultural history. The place is even bigger than it looks from outside! Good for all ages.

Our daughters had a great time at this museum. There is a lot of local heritage and flavor. Our kids particularly liked the Civil War section of medical horrors!

The 100+ year old home is worth the trip - beautifully crafted woodwork, tapestries, stained glass, and fireplaces. The exhibits are well done and include lots of hands on, interactive rooms. It is not a children's museum, but has been set up to accommodate all...More
