“Museum Closed for Renovations”
Reviewed August 20, 2012 via mobile

The museum is closed for an extended period for renovations. Before going you should check on the progress but I believe it is until sometime 2013.

Reviewed July 2, 2012

Interactive display with lots of information. I especially like the wall of kids' photos. Daunting but moving.
