  • Excellent experience with lots of local flavour. Charlie at reception is an institution and the speakeasy bar is rather special
  • I loved the Snell gallery of decorative arts. What a hidden treasure!
  • Surprising amount of information about the area plus sports personalities, musicians, actors, and other notable people from area.
  • I really enjoyed visiting the museum. A lot of info that I did not know we had. The guide was very good and made it interesting all the way through. Can't wait to take my grand kids!
  • So much to see! Make sure you give yourself plenty of time. Also it's freezing in there. Bring a jacket!
