We are 1hour away and had never visited so decided to do so on one of my days off. The tour is limited but informative and the employees are friendly. The museum is small but has lots of items. Was glad we went.

I really can not remember the length of the tour, but it seems it was around an hour. There are several restaurants not far away. You would probably need to drive to them. Check TripAdvisor for ratings...
