Multiple buildings with lots of interesting History related items to see. Tour guide was informative and patient with us and the kids. There are some neat little interactive stations for kids to play around with as well. Nice off the beaten path visit.

The grounds of this multi building museum complex are very well kept. The volunteers are pleasant. There are clean restrooms and a cute little gift shop. I really enjoyed just meandering through each building and learning about Milan’s history!

When we bought our tickets and started the tour we thought that this would be the typical "here's the blacksmith shop and here's where the So-and-So family lived. But, wow the art collection, the glass collection, and some of the oddities (e.g., an assortment of...More

We happened onto this by accident, but were glad we went. There were several buildings and mostly self-guided. There were volunteers to answer questions, if needed.

I hate to have to add a review for this but it won't let me edit this listing. They are closed the whole month of January. Huge bummer for us as were visiting family and are headed back to Florida
