Went with someone who had an interest in fans. Fun to see the really old ones. It is amazing the evolution that fans have gone through.

I took the grand kids here and they loved looking at the various exhibits. They had so much fun and didn't want to leave. For me, well, I saw my own toys as a child in the glass cases. What???
