Such an amazing museum with three floors that are well-laid out with beautiful, informative and interactive displays. You need at least three hours to see everything there. Such an educational place to bring your family! My kids loved it! The staff are all so friendly and helpful too! You don’t want to miss this place!!💯❤️
Very good place to learn a lot of the history in this town. Many relics are on display, the staff is knowledgeable and there is plenty of information on the walls, and videos. A guided tour is highly recommended, the establishment is donation based, so no entry fee, but we always donate, other wise we wouldn't have these things to appreciate.
