I was in the area the other day and had some time to kill after lunch and decided to check this place out. For a small museum it has many interesting things. I will be taking my wife back next time.

Unless you are from here, I don't think it would thrill a visitor. It's about the history of this area. It's close to the river, and the train. NOt all people are into that kind of thing.
