A wealth of information on the area. Well worth a visit and guided tours available. We did not take a guided tour as we prefer to do our own thing. There is an informative website which is well worth checking out before your visit to the area. http://www.mdpl.org/

A must visit. Very cool if you are into history, especially art history. It's a quick visit, but the gift shop is amazing.

A must stop for anyone coming to the area, especially those with some knowledge of the Art Deco period and the events that were going on in our country at that time.

Set in the midst of the Art Deco district, this museum is a little gem. It's quite small (only a large room) but packed with fascinating information and exhibits. We spent over an hour here and recommend it to all who are interested in Art Deco.
