  • They constantly have talks about everything from historical topics to current politics to arts and architecture. Many of these are free. If there is a fee it us generally less than $25. The museum itself is small, but the collection is worth seeing.
  • A wonderful little museum type space. Came here for a theme night Thursday with free admission. Make sure to get a tour cause the story of how an exhibit was made is just as interesting as the exhibit itself!
  • Old pretty building. A wooden, warm library. Harry Potter-like
  • awesome place, just wish the railings were higher
  • Very knowledgeable staff
