The museum and grounds are not to be missed. Exhibits were very well done and brought back many memories. The grounds are beautiful and a perfect setting for a concert.

I’m not sure how clean and updated the nearest hotels are, but there are quite a few nice hotels in Middletown,which is about a half hour ride (traffic depending). Check out Home2Suites which is fairly new and reasonable.
