We bought the 3 pack of museum tours that included this museum, the witch house museum, and the pirate museum. This was fun for the entire family and the dungeon replica was neat to see. It was our favorite out of all the museums.

A little show and a little tour. The family enjoyed the presentation and tour. It is quick and provides an interesting perspective of the types of conditions.

We did the 10:30am event time on Monday in April and there were about 10 others attending. This could probably take 60-70 people easily and is probably packed between summer and fall. Anyway we thoroughly enjoyed this and they had my kids attention from beginning...More
