I had my first visit to the museum and had a very pleasant and informative experience there. I arrived just before closing and did not have as long as I would have liked to look around. I will be going back to have another visit.

Alway's nice to learn the local points of what had happened around here back in the days. Dow plantation was a very interesting beginning.

We visited the museum in the afternoon. It was not very busy. Very interesting to understand the early history of the area, and the history of the Dow chemical company here. Nice displays. Helpful lady at the desk.
