Beautiful museum but the contents were just so so to my liking. Lots of pictures/paintings upstairs, the better stuff was downstairs so maybe start there. We went on a day that was free via Bank of America.

i really enjoyed the museum. the exhibits were very well done. Very informative. pictures were fantastic. a very relaxing time. just stroll through. it was great to see all the children going through the museum. i would recommend going when not so many children are around. it is nicer to go with someone that was my only regret. there is lots of parking. there are people going threw the parking lot on carts. i think its to give rides if necessary. they were very friendly

I implore all fellow baby boomers to pay this museum a visit. It took us back to the days of B&W TV & uncomplicated lives. Oh, to be a child again! You won't regret the time spent here.

We had a great few hours in this hidden gem. A lot of fun memorabilia, nice art, and interesting historic artifacts. Fun for kids and adults. We went later in the afternoon and almost had the place to ourselves.
