I can't really talk about the value of the museum, but having been there for a wedding reception it was an amazing building. The dome with the dance floor underneath was breathtaking, and the outdoor garden are with historic brick backgrounds was stunning.

Not a huge museum but we enjoyed viewing the exhibits...nicely done & very informative. $7 adult/$6 senior admission is reasonable. Small gift shop inside but we didn't visit that.
