I host foreign students every summer, and design their program. I'm just sorry I hadn't taken groups to this museum sooner, and I definitely will schedule it for every group in the future.

Great place to explore the history, art, and culture of the area. Great exhibits on topics from the founding of the area, the farming and industrial background of the area, and the many cultures that have melded to form the current community
