“Well done and worth a visit”
Reviewed 13 July 2014

In fairness, I visited for the craft fair held on the grounds but could see there is a generous number of restored buildings and teaching exhibitions on a number of relevant topics. I will go back for a longer visit the next time we are in the area.

“what positive changes”
Reviewed 29 December 2013

Just less than a year ago I had less than memorable visit. There was things of Historical content & value, Staff was nice enough, But not an attraction of lasting impression or that might warrant a quick re-Visit. Place was Not that clean & organized feeling.
Then the "Buzz on the "Street " in the last 6 months with a NEW Director Alison Schell, required a peek ! Amazing the Vibrancy that One Young diversely Trained Youngster can do to 1 small Building. More things of Interest. Catalogue items are easy to reference, Local Handmade items tastefully arranged, Clean. The staff is very helpful, local recommendations, almost Chipper. Miss Schell is a.Nice addition to the town.
More seems to be going on in the Town of Milton around the areas that she may influence (could be just a coincidence )
