We loved this museum. It is a small area but they pack a lot of information into their displays. Very enjoyable and quick look at the history of the area. For sure worth a visit if you have some extra time.

I have not been to the Chesterfield Inn. Just do your usual review through trip advisor for that area and hotel.
