Absolutely amazing. If you have any interest in science or history, this is the place for you. A treasure trove of fossils, geodes, coins, and physics instruments-- even an art collection. Plus the house itself is impressive. We could've easily aren't 4 hours here. Try to schedule your visit around the demonstration.
Really loved this museum. It’s display of historical scientific instruments is by far one of the best collections I’ve seen of this type. The museum building is also beautiful and well maintained. The art collection is small but nice. It wasn’t very crowded and the have audio guides in English.
