This is my third trip to the museum. There is always a wonderful art exhibit. This time is was a fascinating display of yarn art by sailors: Woolies. The exhibit downstairs was also very nicely presented.. Add to that a resident artist who was helping the visitors with some wired stones and shells that would become part of a hanging display. This was fun for adults and children. There is something for everyone. The wonderful grounds are dotted with sculptures . The shaded walks are delightful. We just happened to hit a day when art vendors set up displays. A wonderful variety of nicely done crafts.
Not just for artists...

...but if you are, you'll absolutely adore this beautiful gallery/garden/studio! There's something for everyone, including classes and seasonal exhibits. The Upstairs gallery is featuring "Woolies" - embroidered illustrations made by sailors in the 1800s of canvas and wool. A fascinating exhibit, with historical notes and offering a glimpse into the lives of these sailors as they expressed their creativity in a very personal way. The Art Lab provides hands-on opportunities for adults and children to express their creativity which is amply inspired in this wonderful facility. Go for a few hours or days...your life will be enriched through the experience!
Not to be missed!!!

Admission is only $5 for Adults and totally worth it. On my visit they were featuring the Fairy and Gnome exhibits, there were 66 throughout the paved and wooded path, no bugs, and it was very relaxing and enjoyable, I walked it twice and found things on my second trip that I missed on the first. Then I went upstairs to the Woolen Art exhibit and it was also very nice.

They have a very nice walk you can do over Christmas that is decorated with lots and lots of Christmas lights. I'm not sure what they do during the rest of the year but their christmas light are excellent.
