The volunteers were very friendly, and I really liked the historical atmosphere and educational materials there. My family and I spent 2 hours there and we enjoyed the hands-on areas a lot.

We visited with our 6 year old and spent a couple of hours searching the interactive and other exhibits. Something for all the family. Service was excellent.
