The grandkids and I went to several places over the summer and this was their favorite. It doesn't take long to look at all the things that the Button King put buttons on but it was interesting to hear his story.

I would email first if you want to meet the button king. He is 94 and doesn't always feel good. I believe that between 10-2 would be best times . The museum is at his home(farm ? ) so his family is always there.
