This is a great place especially for those of us that grew up in Cleveland. There is a great amount of local history and tradition in these walls. It may be the last place we will be able to see Chief Wahoo.

A quick tour if the museum isn’t busy could be completed in an hour - it just depends on how interested you are in old cars, old planes, and historic residences. The carousel is not a long ride.
