I like this museum. It’s small but complete. There are outside sculptures in the gardens and it is in a lake. Very serene. The Capen House is also there. It’s a must see museum!

Really a fantastic museum that is well worth spending a few hours in. We found it surprising that a town this size would have such a high level museum. Docents were very well educated on all aspects of the works. Definitely a must see!

Hi Renee, If you head east from the museum (turning left instead of right when you leave), you'll find plenty other restaurant options.

It was $4 for seniors. I believe the admission price is on their website. It's often under "Plan your visit."
