You'll be greeted by 3 artistic renderings of a moose. Inside is a covered bridge museum - not terribly interesting, but a short video makes up for it. Be sure to watch. There is also a gallery of native American artwork - surprisingly good. The...More

Great building and location with some whimsical statues on the ground. Most of the art is for sale, so it seems strange to have to pay to get in. There is a covered-bridge museum in the building which was more interesting that I would have...More

We only had time for one more museum and I am so glad we picked this one. The Covered Bridge museum is worth it by itself, but the art portion is spectacular as well. Nice gift shop too.
