If you love the history of the 60's, you will love this museum. If you are coming to see the grounds, make sure there isn't a concert on the day you come. They do not let you walk around. The museum is worth the visit,...More

I am not able to answer you. I think the couple who own and run the museum travel away during the winter but I am not sure when they leave. You can call as he is very good at returning calls. Good luck.
