Apart from a great collection and interesting stories, the staff knows exactly what lives with their visitors and does everything possible to make your experience one to remember.

Thank you for your question. No, Paul Ceruzzi was not involved in the establishment of this museum. He is a good friend - but the museum was founded by my wife Barbara and myself. Best, George Keremedjiev
