  • Awesome place! The 3D recreation of the olden times is mind blowing! Michael has such a vivid imagination. His talent and vision with this is absolutely spectacular! Steve and Laura were absolutely awesome in explaining how Michael put this together and how he came up with the concept. If you enjoy looking at the past, you'll be amazed at how much detail this exhibit has. You'll truly get a glimpse of the past.
  • Magic town inside the museum is amazingly detailed. Definitely worth the admission and you can take as little or as much time as you like to go through it. There is a scavenger hunt available which can be a fun activity for all in the family.
