  • I did some genealogy research today, and the staff went WAY beyond what I expected. Matthew took careful notes on my research subject, and spent some time with me, pointing me in the right direction, and helping with the research.

  • Super place on sale in July, we been a couple times with family. It Great.
  • Beautiful building with lots of quiet spots. Great for fund raisers and other venues.
  • Came in as part of a class and was shown the exhibits by two extremely friendly staff members. You can get a reader card good for a year which allows you access to the coolest historical stuff ever. I'm so ready to explore the expansive cartography section as it's one of the best in the world.
