My wife and I went there in November. This is a hidden gem of a museum about a man that must Americans probably know very little.

Totally satisfying museum experience; huge place but not overwhelming. Three hours went by before we realized it.

There seem to be something for everyone including a quilt exhibit while we visited. It is a... More

Follows his start as a bicycle builder to a motorcycle racer, to an aviator and inventor, and even through the development of... More
