While on a weekend getaway for our anniversary in Lake Geneva, a small $10 donation treated my wife and I to a fascinating hour long tour of a little known functioning museum rich in 1890s- early 1900s history.
We had other commitments after the tour and had to leave, but hope to return to spend some time in the on-site museum, which looked very interesting.

... goes on for rooms and rooms, exceedingly well curated, and with a very gracious curator/docent to show you around and talk Toby Jug history, along with the history of the collector and proprietor of the museum.
... even he had nothing but high praise - this is earth shattering news to anyone sharing my DNA so don't walk by because the front door seems unappealing - the actual museum will provide conversation for hours.
