Nicely displayed in the building that shares an entrance with the former hospital building. Also shares space with Mrs. Rockefeller's collection of folk art which is outstanding.

All my favorites, furniture, porcelain, portraits, silver, all decorative accessories. Great gift shop. Nice place to have lunch.

The decorations for Christmas were very nice but the collections on display were great. I especially liked the doll house rooms and my husband enjoyed the coins. They have an extensive collection of tableware.

The museum had man exhibits showing you about the people and devices used in colonial times. The historical videos were also great.

So much to see here. We could have stayed all day at the museum. Fortunately, there is a cafe (we did not eat there) and plenty of seating.
