Have been a member for years, but they keep upping their game. It's small but the exhibitions are varied and often fascinating. Grandkids love their wonderful collection of rocks and minerals.

Very brief walk through the museum this afternoon. The quality of the minerals on display was terribly impressive. At or above the quality of much larger museums. The tool themed art was not my favorite.

You’ll find plenty of parking up the driveway to the right. The left goes to a sort of loading dock.
