    Small intimate museum, but had high quality displays. When I went, there were Ansel Adams and Dr Seuss exhibits that showcased unique, not often seen works, esp of Adams, whom I am a big fan. All of the local history displays were nicely done, but some of the information is debatable if you grew up here. Overall a cool place to go if there is an exhibit that piques your interest.

    Very interesting displays. However this is not a great place to take younger children. We send on a field trip with 3rd grade. That is the youngest I would take. You are not supposed to touch anything.

    A bit overpriced for what it is but the Curious George exhibit was cool. The kids had a great time.
