I love bluegrass, but even if you aren't a fan you need to stop. The history and samples will at least win over your respect, I guarantee it! Plenty of gifts and music cds to buy too.

The cost for seniors is $8. The museum was getting ready to move to a larger facility. I would call first to be sure they are open.
