  • Fun but small for the price (which isn't much in the first place, but would rather spend it on the cool things in their gift shop). We didn't have to pay though because the upstairs was closed off due to some issues they were having. The people were really nice about it. The fire trucks on the lower level were cool and my son enjoyed the children's room. That's pretty much all there was to see on the first floor though, so we didn't see much. It's a bit run down. Some of the Google photos that are posted are much nicer than it looks right now. Could use some TLC.
  • Whenever I'm in town I always stop by here. I can spend hours just browsing and looking around.Lots of great restaurants and little shops
  • Unfortunately the upper floor was closed for renovation when I visited. Small museum but a few interesting exhibits.
  • If you are going with kids under 5 and hoping to get into the kid room, don't go on a Saturday. They have private parties in the kids room on Saturdays and other guests of the museum are not allowed in. The ~3 other rooms were interesting enough for the kids, but only for about 15 minutes before we'd seen everything and were ready to go. Definitely not the amount of time I was expecting to spend at the museum! An adult could probably read and experience everything in about 45 minutes.
  • My boy loved this place. Great history, and an interactive section for him to touch.
