My wife is a BFA from a major art school in the US and loves folk art. This was the most extensive exhibit that we have ever seen and you need 4 hours to truly review the collection.

The dolls and doll houses will delight any age. A breath-taking collection of folk art that should not be missed. Entry price is steep with no break for seniors which was disappointing. Nonetheless this museum is a must-see.

The museum is overwhelming. It explores a Folk Art in all its form. It is worth a visit, but not as interesting as other museums in the area. The gift shop is like a rummage sale.

Really great exhibits with tons to see all around you (look up!) but I didn't pick up a guide for each room which I regret. There were a few things lacking context because of that but still really interesting to look at.
