The grounds of this multi building museum complex are very well kept. The volunteers are pleasant. There are clean restrooms and a cute little gift shop. I really enjoyed just meandering through each building and learning about Milan’s history!

We happened onto this by accident, but were glad we went. There were several buildings and mostly self-guided. There were volunteers to answer questions, if needed.

I hate to have to add a review for this but it won't let me edit this listing. They are closed the whole month of January. Huge bummer for us as were visiting family and are headed back to Florida
