Nice place, tied with the Cleveland history. Has the Euclid park merry go round. Cars, planes, a couple motorcycles. Political buttons, the Manson’s, look at the details in the wood work. Nice place to visit.

For the youngsters, there are lots of interactive spots and a wonderful carousel. Friendly, helpful staff. I so enjoyed the fabric and clothing exhibits, my hubby loved the cars. Kids also loved the boats they could climb into.
