    Outstanding. Dick Button ice skating exhibit an unexpected treasure and Andrew Wyeth pictures great. The house itself is gorgeous and a piece of history. Then sit on a bench and watch the river go by.

    A wonderful and thoughtfully laid out museum with interesting exhibits that were not advertised. The photos of jazz legends was incredible.
