Hard to find. The guy at the front desk was unfriendly/unhelpful. The collection was okay but the lighting was terrible; the light was very bright and reflected on a lot of the pieces. Many pieces were too close to each other. Clunky set-up. There was...More

Truly wonderful collection in a building with a chequered history. Spent hours looking around. Front room on each level is set up as a Victorian parlour and gives a great atmosphere. The elevator alone is a museum piece. No photography is allowed.

What a wonderful find! Our docent was Sally that gave an informative tour of the museum containing pieces from the early 1800’s to current times interpreting the settling of the West. Interesting that the art is hung European style, but it is a small museum....More
