I had my first visit to the museum and had a very pleasant and informative experience there. I arrived just before closing and did not have as long as I would have liked to look around. I will be going back to have another visit.

We visited the museum in the afternoon. It was not very busy. Very interesting to understand the early history of the area, and the history of the Dow chemical company here. Nice displays. Helpful lady at the desk.

The museum is well organized and worth a visit. There is no charge to visit. They cover area history and local influential people.
