WHAT OUR VISITORS ARE SAYING...

Google Reviews, June 2017

What a cool place for kids and adults! We loved that it has ties to the original Disney gang. Mr. Sharpsteen sure was a talented and fascinating man. My personal museum favorite was the walk through attached cottage from the 1800's. It is rare to get that close to great quality antiques. My children loved the exhibit where you can watch the train go around the town. We're very glad we stopped in and also took time to shop in their reasonably priced gift shop and chat with the friendly and informative staff. Highly recommended!
