The Red Mill Museum is a wonderful and well maintained place to visit, has many cool, historical exhibits, and very nice helpful people working there. It should not be confused with the "Art" Museum, which is run by a privately owned corporation, which sells memberships,...More

The red mill itself is a cool space, with lots of equipment remaining in place. However, the items displayed within were disorganized and often irrelevant to the site. The informational placards were completely random, with no discernible flow to the information presented. It felt like...More
