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.

the administration/ lobby of the building looks modern but once you step through you get a glimpse of the olden days. Great for school trips, anyone who likes museums and are interested in history. Also offers classes here and they have a great pottery studio.

Kind of empty here without events, I picked the place because I stayed in Monte Carlo Inn, it's a bus at the front of hotel and can transfer one bus to here. The exhibition is poor without organized things.More
