Visited over labor day weekend with my retired parents and aunt and uncle. The museum is situated in a park like setting. It is just beautiful. The staff are extremely friendly and knowledgeable. Lots of walking required to see everything, but worth it.

I cannot say enough about this place. We spent over 4 hours and still did not see everything. We went on 3 scheduled tours given by Gordon and found them very informative. He is a font of knowledge. Grounds are pristine. We rented a scooter...More
