We stopped by since we were staying in the area. Small but nice museum. Really enjoyed chatting with the volunteer about Leland's ties to Jim Henson and other local places of interest.

If you love Kermit the frog this is where he was born...don't miss it and quick little stop to break up your travels and if you are on a motorcycle they will let you put the big Kermit on your bike with you.
