  • Very knowledgeable staff. Clean exhibits, nice variety of topics and were well made. Will come back and bring my children, many interactive ways to learn history.
  • Go see the Poe show during October! Great stuff!
  • It's a cool place to go if you like this sort of thing but it can be very empty at times.
  • Love their 1920s exhibit! Check their website for free breakfast events (free admission but pay for food).
  • This is absolutely one of my favorite museums! I took my 8 year old son here for the first time and he loved it. He loves to play video games and was really excited to see all of the weapons and displays!
