Loved the museum's charm and all of the items that they have on display. There are lots of things to see here and the attendant there was wonderful. This is a great stop if you have a couple of hours to spend.

This was on our 'must-see' list, and we were not disappointed! The structure itself is incredible, and the displays were informative and interesting. Well worth the admission!

I loved visiting this little museum. The entry fee was $10 per person and it was well spent. The main attraction seems to be Robert the Doll, but there are many other historical exhibits and art on display! It’s definitely a great place to take...More

First read about Robert the doll and then go to this very interesting (a little out of the way) museum. I have always wanted to see Robert so I made sure on this visit to get to the museum.

I assume they would be open during Fantasy Fest...all the attractions are open as I remember. Fantasy Fest is a great adult experience.
