This is a small museum downtown. Alot of information on the Peace corps. There is a nice children's area upstairs. There are also cards to give facts/ explain things, and they have different ones for adults and kids. Its a great idea.

I am a Daytonian and proud that we have this museum. However, it offers very little to the visitor for the suggested $8 donation. The first and most grievous issue is that it is NOT ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) compliant. Oh, there's a ramp...More
