We stopped in on our way through and it did not disappoint. 'Chief' gave us a tour. He was wonderful. Lots of information and stories. It's a hidden treasure for sure. A must see.

It has an amazing number of items on display with daily arrivals and many more waiting to be displayed. The volunteers are so knowledgeable and take as much time as you want to talk about the displays. GREAT place to visit

Visited the museum by accident but it had so much meaning, I have talked about it to many. It is in a local neighborhood, a very small museum but rich in history.
