I was taken back on how well the museum is well rounded. The first floor showed the lifestyle of the Howard’s. The second floor dedicated to steam boats and tools of the trade. Best seven dollars I have spent in a long time.

I really enjoyed the visit to this museum. I am not as interested in steamboats as I am in architecture, so I will leave the steamboat comments to others and just say that I really liked the replica of the steamboat Indiana. After finding out...More
