  • A very adorable museum that is so full of genuine heart and personality. Cute art, and a chance to learn about the remarkable life of an eccentric artist well ahead of his time. Everything is free, the tour was very informative, it’s well worth your while!
  • Godly pokestop
  • Needs alot of work .It was closed.
  • Beautiful work. Be nicer if it was wheelchair accessible. Interesting history.
  • I wish more people knew about Charles MacDonald. While you're at it go visit his Jelly Bean cottages at Huntington point
