Have you ever seen 8 orginal Remington's in the same museum? It is Smithsonian quality in a small town environment. You will pleasantly shocked and go back time and time again. Every user is offered audio headphones to enrich their experience. They have a great gift shop and knowledgeable docents in every section. The annex was a bit disappointing although... More
