    What a wonderful little museum! The docents are extremely knowledgeable and passionate. We arrived late so the last train ride was full, something we were prepared for since it is first come, first serve. But the staff were so apologetic and accommodating that any disappointment (which was completely on us for bad planning) was rectified two fold! We were given a fascinating guided tour by the sweetest gentleman. Since it was towards the end of the day, our toddler was over it but every volunteer was so friendly and helpful throughout his little tantrums. We already have plans to go back next weekend, with a rested toddler 😁 Thank you all for a wonderful visit!
