Very nice museum about the local history. Kelly tries was in this area, so 3 rooms about the huge industry the have here. Nice displays, places to sit, bathrooms, beer display, many old furniture displays.
Stopped in here before visiting the station. The docent was friendly and quite knowledgeable. Lot of local history. You can roam at your leisure and the docent would pop in now and then to check on you. Free, but donations accepted.
