This is a wonderful museum! The space is beautiful and the collection is broad and of exceptional quality. The collection spans human history and geographies. And of course, there's the Rocky steps!

There was so much to see! One ticket gives you 2 days and I wish I'd had the time to spend. Huge varieties and many many styles to enjoy. $20. very well spent.

A complete infotainment guide and a lavish history place. The masonic Temple seems totally out of time and of period. Must visit.
