It is always a delight to visit the museum, since exhibits change on a yearly basis, and reflect the current national, world, and Olympic skating champions.
We spent about 90 minutes total, but it's easy to become enraptured by the glittery skating costumes and video presentations.

As a matter of fact I think it's the largest private owned insect collection in the world and Walt Disney even tried to buy it many years ago when he saw it.
Not for everyone, but this museum is like a step back in time.

There is something for everyone here, and they are constantly putting on specials, artist meet and greets, events, and have a great gallery location.

They offer a glass of wine if you visit on Saturday afternoons, starting at 4, so it has been a tradition for us to peruse the art in both the Traditional and the Western Galleries then.
The gallery person we dealt with was very knowledgeable of the artwork and the artists.

Children get to run from playing house with pots and pans to becoming a park ranger, building blocks, dinosaurs, magnetic wall, and my favorite, a giant Lite Brite wall.
There is a little treehouse with a slide, a pretend general store and park ranger station with costumes.... so unique; I’ve never seen anything like it.
