I arrived 4.15 but they took me around and explained the exhibits and knew so much about Frank McCourt and the area. They closed up late to let me see the film. A must see.

Frank McCourt truly lives on in this very personal museum with much of his memorabilia and re-creations of his classroom and his apartments of his childhood. This is very small and can be fully seen within an hour. If you enjoyed the book and his...More
