Has some interesting exhibits but is not large. You only need an hour or so to go through. Worth a quick look. Entry is $6

Interesting small museum. Artifacts were well displayed and the information provided about the history of the area was good. Special exhibit when we were there was an interesting addition.

The building is very nice outside but doesn't do the inside justice. What a lovely museum! Everything is very well done, spacious with great displays. It's really a good tribute to this area.
