“beautiful park”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2013

The park where the museum and casino (used only for events now- beautiful) is an oasis in the city. Ponds, ducks, flowers fountains, springs and an antique restored carousel. It's a nice destination and near ben and jerry's grab a cone and head over for a stroll- Free except the carousel is like - $1.50

“A bit of nostalgia”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 June 2013

Be sure to look at the pictures on the wall of what the building looked like inside when it was still a casino. It's now rented out for various functions. Has a great museum and beautiful architecture. The park around it is a gem.

“Fascinating history of area”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 April 2013

Thanks to the lady at desk, I got a personal orientation then proceeded to walk and read my way around entire museum. I now have a great appreciation of the history and understand the highlights of area--esp. the haunted exhibit on 3rd floor!

“More than we bargained for!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2013

We went to this Musuem just out of curiosity. And so glad we did. The woman that greeted us was very informative. The second floor where the Casino used to be has lots of interesting displays. We took our time and just enjoyed each area. There is no elevator. But the third floor where they placed the items from the Walworth Mansion just can't be described justly. We walked around and took pics without the flash and listened to the history of the items. The place has the feel of how it used to be in that time period. We really didn't expect anything odd to happen and it didn't as far as we knew. Until we got home and downloaded the pics that we had taken.. Draw your own conclusions but this is a must for paranormal believers!!

“Very helpful”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 March 2013

Very interesting building and even though I was very familiar with the area I learned a lot of things that I was not aware of. The lady that was there was very helpful and she played a video for us that was worth watching.
