Random collection of stuff. No rhyme or reason to the exhibits. I liked the history of the building and the music room. There is a good glass collection but not worth the price of admission to me.

My teens love this place. We all three get a kick out of seeing what other folks collected. It's kitschy, odd, funny and wonderful. The stained glass room is my favorite part. Seeing the remnants of when the building was a hotel is interesting as well. A great way to spend a couple of hours in air conditioned comfort.

Me being a middle school history teacher might have something to do with that but the exhibits were very interesting. If you visit, don't forget to go see the... More

Housed in the gorgeous Old Alcazar hotel, this is a great destination to also see the hotels and beautiful... More

This place was interesting. I wish they had an audio tour like most places now use. There is much more Tiffany across the street at the college.
