Museum is very small and many of the displays are very fake and cheesy. The admission was 7 dollars but it was actually worth 3 dollars. We went on a hot day and it had no AC. Save your money.

We checked this place out purely out of curiosity. It is full of information and things to look at. Definitely something to do if you need to kill some time.

This place took maybe 10 minutes to walk through, if I didn't read everything it would have been maybe 2 minutes. Waste of money!
