Aside from touring the museum, Rockwood Park is a great place to walk. Lots of shaded area and peaceful. A good place for a walking meditation.

Took advantage of a sunny spring day to see the Rockwood Museum and Park. We felt as though we were transported back into the 19th century! The audio tour truly enhanced our knowledge and visit. We highly recommend putting this resource to use.
