This is hidden treasure in Sandusky. Very attractive museum and worth the stop to tour it. Very nice with programs and interactive displays for children. For adults there are great speakers and informational programs. A good place for educational field trips for schools, scouts and community groups. The museum had many excellent exhibits, and children loved driving the Lymon boat complete with the view of the lake. It felt like a real boat ride.
