This is a small museum, actually located in an old home, but it's definitely worth your time. There's a lot of history in there, and the volunteer at the front desk was very knowledgeable.

For our family this was a 30 min to an hour stop. The kids had things to do as they had an activity sheet that they had to find things in the building. Had a few neat facts.
