“My Family and Guest love it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

First of all .. ITS FREE! Its collection is impressive and if you really want to get alot out of your visit you might get lucky asking for a tour. I have friends who visit from other country's that are so amazed by this museum that I take everyone here. Sometimes they have concerts here that are very enjoyable but they are ticketed events. Get out of the house and instead of the mall go walk the Butler they view is so much better!
