“Civil War”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2014

The exhibit was about the Irish and Irish-Americans who fought on both sides of the American Civil War. Very interesting to learn of the different regiments from both sides and where they fought. The exhibits do change occasionally to keep it fresh if you are able to return. The library has some excellent resources.

“Fix your website”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013 via mobile

I went there on a Sunday according to their website they are open from 12:00 to 4:00 well that wasn't the case. From the outside it looks very small. I still plan on going there but I will make sure I call a few days in advance. Once I actually get to check this place out I will update this review but for now I'm going to give it a average rating.

“Exhibits, lectures and library”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2012

I've visited twice since this opened several years ago. The exhibit space is small, but they do provide periodic events and lectures, which are interesting (Have not yet checked out the library, but this looks like it may have useful resources for the researcher.)
