Very interesting items all over. The tour was a bit slow, but there was plenty to look at.
One of a kind community supported museum.
Very knowledgeable staff about the museum history great place to visit
Visited the Museum late June 2018. Their display are excellent - showcasing the stuffs back in time cannot believe the innovations through the years. Some of the display are welcome to be touched (which gives our tour in this museum such a unique experience). The building was an old school which was empty for a long while. My husband was a graduate here, visiting this was fun and interesting.
