The museum is filled with art work, collections of furniture, china, and so much more. Be sure to check the schedule for programs and events schedule each day. Be sure to visit the gift shop.

Great folk art from all over the US. It was fun and informative. Some of the pieces were incredibly detailed and were simply picked up by the road.
