My Review:

To be honest wasn’t expecting much and was blown away!  Great Museum!  The Museum is in two parts the original building and the new expansion.  The collection is wonderful and the interpretative signage is very well written.  All of the things I look for; great collection, a mix of techniques for different learning styles, easy to navigate and the collection serves as a tool for learning about the culture.

P.S. I am always a sucker for old wooden exhibit cases


  • Great collection
  • Great Interpretation of collection
  • Way finding could be better
  • Exhibit lighting could be better
  • A great surprise!
