An overlooked museum, with some interesting exhibits and a well maintained open air portion. Our tour guide was engaging and provided good insight into the buildings.

The museum area was the venue for the wedding we attended. There was another one earlier. This is a great place as a venue, lots of places for pictures(weather permitting). Things to see while waiting, clean bathrooms. Good security. Friendly staff. Lots of parking.
