We visited this directly after the Reitz Home Museum, and what a letdown it was! It felt like any other museum - nothing stood out, and the exhibits were rather dry and boring. I would not recommend it.

You will need to go to their website to check on times and prices for their events but the museum itself does not cost just donations.
