Our family had a ball. It's reasonably priced, and we spent about an hour and half- 2 hours here. The curator is very friendly and knowledgeable. Worth the drive, and worth the time.

This place is great! The staff is very knowledgeable about local history and the displays there. Nearly everything there is period to the house or to the area at the very least. This place is definitely worth the stop.
