  1. We visited the museum on 9-4-16 at 3:25pm and it was closed. Very very disappointed !!!!! We are in town for 2 days and wanted to see it. Your sign said until 4:00 pm the outside sign was out , but someone took off early, very disappointed. I haven’t been here in 25 years! Will probably never be back.

  2. We apologize for the inconvenience you experienced. The curator had emergency surgery that day. He is normally available during the hours posted. Again, we apologize for this inconvenience.
