First time visitor to this establishment and it was really fascinating! Not only is it a gift shop, it houses a huge treasury of items from Shakespeare's works. The proprietor, Terry, is so knowledgeable and very pleasant.

Highly recommend stopping by and seeing all of the Shakespeare props, costumes, photos, books and more. Kids and teens love dressing up. Great place to get supplies for teachers and homeschooling.

A museum of Shakepeare where you might least expect it, and a decent museum at that. There are some local artworks and curios for sale.

We walked into this little museum/office without knowing anything about it or what to expect. The small room is packed with things about Shakespeare. Books, documents, costumes for different plays. The owner himself looks like he just time travelled back from a meeting with Shakespeare....More
