This is a new museum that's very well done. The displays explaining the trade of silversmithing are very informative and describe the process with great visuals. There was a special exhibit while we were there and it was excellent!

A new interesting museum, with easy access for the disabled. A couple of interesting films about how to make silver, nice amenities and a very nice museum shop. Well worth a visit.
