You visit a place that takes you back in time. The Museum allows you to find out about the Indian groups from this area; the rural schools; the products produced in the area; how people lived and survived. The visit is well worth it.

On their web site, they state that they are closed on major holidays. New Year's Day would qualify as a major holiday.
