The museum is centered on a rare ca. 1720 Post Medieval "dwelling house" sited on historic grounds that include period gardens, a small orchard and heritage stone walls. A modern wing includes classrooms, collection storage, a research library, period tavern room and galleries.
Exhibits on September 29 will include: tours of the historic house; an exhibit about the building, its occupants, and how it was converted into a museum; two galleries with changing exhibitions; period gardens.
