Definitely worth visiting, whether or not you go to the art museum and/or the circus museum. A memorable place, with lots of charm.

“The volunteers make this fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

Ok..sure...the building is lovely and a must see inside and out. BUT..what really makes this is the HELPFUL volunteers. From the front door greeter, the fun inside man joking about the building budget, the helpful watch your step woman, to the one in the kitchen making sure you did not miss the formal dining room...it was special. The place is beautiful inside and out. Enjoy the free tram shuttle to whisk you to the front gate.

There were marvelous things.
