Toured this museum of hand-carved ivory ships that took my breath away! The artist conducted the tour and explained how he makes each piece and gave the history. It was amazing!!! 2 1/2 hours was not enough time!!

My husband and I recently visited this place with some friends who recommended it. It is AMAZING! The work of David Warther is remarkable. You must visit and see it for yourself.

I had heard of David Warther's grandfather Mooney, but did not realize anyone else in the Warther family had the same talent. I recently went to Ohio Amish country and had identified a few places to visit if the weather was not all that good....More
