  • Great place! Employees care a lot about what they do and are very knowledgeable and the exhibits are great. Plus, it's a good place to escape the heat in the summer
  • Highly recommend for locals and out-of-towners - the public area is small but has their permanent exhibits (Gutenberg bible and first photograph) and an always interesting rotating exhibit. It's also completely free.

  • This place has some nice artifacts like the first picture ever taken by a camera and one of the first printed bibles (Gutenberg bible).
  • worth checking out if you are on campus. saw an exhibit on a western artist last summer (can't remember his name) that was very well done. "the bible" is there
