This is a wonderful facility with great displays, and a very nice Ludlow exhibit area. It has a fantastic gift shop, and nice grounds, and is a very educational and well designed and managed museum. We highly recommend it for all ages.

The museum is very informative about the local and surrounding areas. My hubby and I were very impressed with it. It took on a whole new meaning when we took our three grandkids, and saw it again through their eyes. Recommend to one and all.
