We were in town for a college tour and decided to visit the museum. We were pleasantly surprised at the quality of the museum. I will go back if I'm ever in town again. There was no admission fee.

We thoroughly enjoyed all the exhibits. Very different from the basic museums. The art work, coins display, statues, and exhibits from so many countries and cultures was amazing. Since there is no charge to tour the museum; please leave a generous donation.
