My sister and I visited this museum recently as we're both interested in architecture. We understand that they do not have a permanent collection, but have changing exhibits. The one we saw was on the influence of the Apollo space mission to architecture. There was one room that had a building that was designed for the Jet Propulsion Lab in Pasadena, CA. There were various models, etc., but there was virtually no information on how the design for the building was developed from the models. I don't know if it was only intended for architects, but I didn't think it was at all informative. Also, there is a new museum building that is built around and attached to an old Victorian house. We were told we could tour the old Victorian, but the doorway that led to the house only led into a room that looked like it was used for meetings. There were no directional signs of how to get to other areas of the house. When we went up a stairway, it really looked like we shouldn't be there. Finally, when we initially entered the museum we had to check our bags upon entering, although we saw other people in the museum with backpacks. When we asked about it on the way out, we were told they were probably employees as all visitors were required to check bags. It didn't look that way to us. Anyway, we didn't stay long, and I wouldn't recommend this at all. It was a waste of time.
