  • There are some very interesting relics and materials. I would plan on spending 2 hours here to read and see all of the info. It's not a very big exhibit but there are many things inside. 100 years worth of history is waiting...
  • Thorough, interesting, well-done museum. Signage includes English. Very worthwhile place to visit.
