I have been here on several occasions. The last visit, my pre-school aged autistic son, was told to not be touching things. What!?!? This is supposed to be a hands-on museum for kids, right???

The place is in neat of cleaning. Odd construction at the steps. Bathroom has a door for part of the wall and you can hear everything. The basement had an odd smell. This place was a major disappointment.

My young adult friend and I used to like to go here. It was very interesting seeing actual Victorian bedroom suite and how it was smaller because people were shorter.

My kids are getting to old for this now but they LOVED going here with their grandma. Would spend an entire day if you let them and then want to back the next day. Kid loved, parent approved.

I am appalled at the condition of this house, the toys and the "displays" in this disaster area. Disgusting.
