I was very excited and shoved this into an already busy schedule in the area, because the website and reviews sounded really interesting, but I was a little disappointed. The location is great downtown. We went in and paid our admission and the girl behind the counter tells us they won't have the "live" show part until later on in the day (so make sure you check beforehand). No problem, I love history.....yet I was at times bored. My older daughter and I enjoyed the displays of the women of Henry the VIII. My youngest enjoyed dressing in a few of the costumes. My husband enjoyed a small section on the Younger Brothers or was it Jessie James I forget. We did enjoy the (I call it American Room) with all types of heritage quilts, flags, and art. IF YOU are a gun enthusiast or armor, you will LOVE it. We did find both the guns and different types of armor interesting, but just so much of it. Oh, one very disappointing thing for the kids was the majority of interactive display items didn't seem to work. We enjoyed some aspects of the museum, but as a whole this was our least favorite of all our activities in the area.
