The museum is well-organized and a great way to spend your morning or afternoon. Plan at least 2-3 hours to be able to enjoy the displays on all 3 levels. The Shay locomotive is a nice tribute to Lima's history with the Lima Locomotive Works. There is an interesting display of foreign bodies that have been inhaled or ingested and removed from patients. There is an iron lung that was used for polio victims. No matter what your interests, I think you can find something that appeals to you. Next door to the museum is the Children's Garden which is a wonderfully-designed area. I especailly enjoy the museum at Christmastime each year because it is filled with decorated Christmas trees provided by various local organizations. It is more crowded at that time, but worth the visit each year. A quieter, less crowded time is also nice. Each time I am there, I see something that I didn't see before.
