The old house the museum is in is more fascinating right now than the museum itself. In their defense the display is not fully open yet. There were 3 rooms in a house with approx. 6 costumes to look at. The attendant said they will open the second story and have a lot more costumes in the future.

From what I understand this museum is a work in progress for right now. My husband and I visited on March 22nd. I loved the costume displays - photos attached. I believe once the organization that is sponsoring the museum can finish compiling all their items and information this will be a very nice museum.

The museum gift shop did open in November but the museum will not open until sometime this summer. If you are in the area... More
