New: Visit our Victorian Kitchen Garden!

NEW FOR 2018:

The museum is delighted to announce the completion of a new permanent outdoor exhibit featuring vegetables, herbs, and flowers typical of a Victorian kitchen garden. This project is the culmination of work completed by Ava Gonzalez, a museum volunteer, for her Girl Scout Gold Award. We are honored to have been able to work with Ms. Gonzalez and are thrilled to share her efforts with you.

Self-Guided Tour brochures are available in our garden under the exhibit’s welcome sign beginning June 2018. If you would like to schedule a more detailed tour of this section of the museum for a group, please contact the museum at 623-9814.
