I attended a string quartet concert during an Arts Festival within the last year. I had not been here for a couple years, and was PLEASANTLY surprised at the exhibits, atmosphere, and the ambiance. So perfect for a small wedding (if that's your thing!)

We really enjoyed the videos of the history of buildings in the area. The collection of presidential autographs was also unique.

A must see if you want to see the interior of a massive historic home. So many wonderful features and great tour. There is an elevator to the upper levels. (We could not get in the door via the accessible ramp, however; it was locked.)

Hello, and thank you for asking. Unfortunately, I do not work at the museum so I can not answer your questions. Best that I can do for now anyway is to suggest that you Google them. I'm sure that their hours are online... More
