The museum includes a tour in the ticket price. You can also watch items being restored and preserved. The museum is worth a detour, especially if you like seeing a slice of pre-bellum life
This was a really fun place! Our tour guide was really nice and we got to meet one of the men who found the Steamboat Arabia. Would definitely recommend this to anyone who enjoys history!
