We visited this lovely town for a weekend on the way totality for solar eclipse. This town was lovely and in particular this art museum was great for us and the kids. As a bonus there was a display of pictures from the Hubble telescope.

We went to see the Hubble photography exhibit and stayed to see the quilts, the small but expertly curated art exhibit, and the delightful children's museum. The museum is surrounded by a sculpture park. This museum is definitely worth seeing.

You can also tour the 90 acres of land, filled with quality outdoor sculptures. Unfortunately,...More
