This is a very small exhibit that you can view in less then 1 hour. There are some interesting facts and exhibits. Worth the price(free) but not much more!

Great for all ages has a coloring room for little kids and a bunch of historic exhibits for the adults and teens. This museum is in one huge room and has beautiful artwork on display. Even the adults learn something.
