This museum often features exhibits one would not expect in a small midwestern city - very thought provoking. The gift shop is one of the best places to shop in the area. The museum offers many community arts programs for adults and children.

Spent half an hour checking out the art ‘around’ the center, including the very interesting “food truck”, and the stones in circular patterns around a ‘monument’, with the curious poems chiseled into the stones at the N-E-S-W entrances. The interior displays are thought provoking... if...More
