“Better than you think it will be”
Reviewed January 5, 2012

I didn't expect much when I went for the Christmas in Africa exhibit, but boy was I wrong. This is a great little museum. The exhibits are well done and quite interesting. Just remember, this is a museum dedicated to the Knights of Columbus and the Catholic Church, so that is what you will get.

“Wonderful exhibits, especially annual Christmas creches”
Reviewed December 11, 2011

Free self-guided museum. In addition to the bi-annual theme, each year at Christmas there is a different Christmas them. This year, it's Christmas in Africa! Also has free parking underneath the building, and is open almost every day year round. Lots of Catholic memorabilia and also some very special 911 exhibits.
