It's a Blue Star Museum and a landmark destination for the arts and sciences. There are three levels to the museum which house permanent and visiting exhibitions throughout. Presently showing is a Lego Art exhibit which filled me with wonderment, a contemporary art exhibit "Wet and Wild" which contained some creative and exceptionally well done pieces." When Sandy Hit" is a collection of photographs of the impact of the storm which I have not seen anywhere else. An interactive "Nano" and "Art Quilts" exhibit were also on display. All exhibits were done in world class fashion with professional set-ups, lighting and labeling. I was surprised to see the diversity of permanent themes, rocks and minerals , American Indians, digging dinosaurs, mammals, trains and railroads and the Guinness Mechanical Instrument collection. The Bickford Theatre produces productions which have won awards and acclaim and has allowed the theatre to draw first class professional actors and directors. This is a wonderful experience for both young and old. It was interesting to learn that the museum has a loan program for schools and educators., an outreach program, a classroom intermission program on various topics and a professional development program. Corporate and private events, as well as, birthday parties can be arranged. My kids are too old at this point but it is a great idea. Free parking and handicap facilities are available. Admission for military families is free. It is a wonderful resource for all.
