This is a well displayed, historic, and interactive museum. Some of the history is unbelievable, and well preserved. I learned a lot, there is also good education of children.

What a great interactive Museum for children and adults! Very cool collections of antique dental instruments and even George Washington's denture! We were surprised to have enjoyed it so much.
