This museum is a hidden gem. We are fortunate to have this experience available for all. A wide variety of art, location for meetings such as the Woodturners monthly meeting and classes.

What we looked at was the "fries" out front, a huge, iron sculpture, painted yellow and called "the fries" by locals. It was the 2nd of our stops on a "biggest foods" tour of Springfield.
