Awesome place to spend the day. They have an awesome collection - ranging from a house filled with art glass, curiosities from around the world, antiques, artifacts from local history - including Edison and the Milan Canal, and many more. They cater to families and have an awesome gift shop as well. Usually get the bulk of my Christmas gifts there!
