Our guide was excellent and taught us about industries that until recently were the dominant force. We learned about oyster shucking, blacksmithing, fabric and printing. Kids and adults really enjoyed the museum - well worth a visit over the typical attractions.

Yes indeed! On Saturdays we offer hands-on activities, live demonstrations in some galleries and then there's our engaging video game exhibit where kids build their own game. Check our website for details.
