The permanent collection is very good, telling the story of the development of the city from earliest days to the present. The exhibits are informative and creative.

We visited on a cold, rainy Sunday. It was the first Sunday of the month so we got in free with free parking, a nice surprise. (A donation is suggested, but no pressure.This museum is worth a nice donation.) The exhibits are well laid out with video, recorded information, and written information . We spent two hours learning much about... More
