What I liked the most, the cafts they had for the kid to do and everyone was just happy to be there. We had an Excellent time.
Great collection and changing exhibitions in a beautiful location on the Lieutenant River. Don't miss Miss Florence's well preserved home, in addition to the modern galleries. (Note: I am a dues-paying Member of the Museum)

Very knowledgeable staff and the special exhibits are always amazing. The outdoor fall exhibits are wonderful for all ages.
