Revolving exhibits on a quaint campus. The school welcomes, encourages and is accomodating to visitors. Look forward to my next event at the Museum and Planetarium . . .

We were pleasantly surprised! The James Brown exhibit is awesome. I couldn't believe that the museum had so many of Brown's personal items. It took me way back. My children also enjoyed it. It's a family affair.
