They have a very clever selection... More

Awesome little museum on Rollins campus. Great collection, but pocket watch keys were a standout. Amazing tiny works of art.

Have heard of museum through work as librarian. Thrilled to see two outstanding exhibits from permanent collection in a sharp juxtaposition to one another - contemporary and classical.
