If you were ever a Scout you should visit it before it closes and moves. They have exhibits that take you back to your scouting days. Take a tour as it will not be here long.

Having 3 Eagle Scouts, this was a real treat. The interactive museum was enjoyable for all (although cub scouts would find it more their style). Good history lesson of this amazing organization. FYI - IT IS RELOCATING TO NEW MEXICO JUNE 2017.
