This is a wonderful place to bring the kids. In a world full of electronics ... This place reminds kids and parents alike that hands on, interactive play reigns supreme. What a gem this place is, with 3 houses of themed rooms to explore and a whole outside play area. It is definitely a place children from little to big will be happy with!

This is really a great museum all the old cars and neat equipment, the parking is easy onsite and free. It is easy to find right off of I-5.I have gone several times during the steam up .that is an event that has all the buildings open food music contest and demonstration it s a lot of fun for people who like old tractors, this is a great event to take children to. call to see when the museum is open but the steam up is always the last weekend in July and the first weekend in august.

One of the top five museums I've had the pleasure of visiting. Excellent content and presentation - this is clearly a museum where art is not only displayed to be seen but to be thought about. I love the exhibit where art is presented in chronological context from ancient Egypt to modern. There are a lot of great pieces there. The native American exhibit is world-class. A couple of interesting perspectives were installed at the time we went, too.
