This museum offered everything you could want in a history museum and was definitely much better than what I saw at Fort Conde. Worth a visit. Wish the Phoenix Fire Museum was open on weekends.

I'm so glad my sister suggested going to this museum. I learned so much new information about my birth-town. The museum is beautiful; has a beautiful layout. You won't be able to see everything in 2 hours; give yourself a half day to see it....More

The museum is very interesting with a collection of dollhouses and antique transportation. We took our young son for a visit and he learned many things. It is spacious and cool - a great escape from the summer heat. Check their website for free days.
