It's obvious that the city of Lancaster invested a lot of money into this place. Hopefully, they feature a lot more artwork on display. The native American display is worth popping your head in to visit. However, it's not something you'd want to come back...More

MOAH's exhibits rotate every two months. Different themes for different seasons. Four seasons in the year. Hopefully worth 4 visits a year.
