There are so many details to absorb that 1.5 hours was about my limit, so I went several times. The introduction to folk art and diversity in the collection tours were worthwhile. I would think that most everyone would find something to interest them here....More

The collection of antique furniture and instruments is awesome. Special collections like portraits, quilts, etc. remind us of past gone by. Special events at Hennige Auditorium.

The Museum has a large and varied collection of Folk Art, ranging from ironwork to textiles, and from portraits to cigar store Indians. Looks like they are expanding the exhibition areas, too. We particularly enjoyed the sign art and the Finster-esque folk/outsider art.
