I have to admit, I don't go into the museum. The reason I go is the gardens around the Oldfields Lilly Mansion. The landscaping is a refined prarie style. There are plants left to be the size and shape they want, as long as the stay off the path. The little creek that flows thru offers a great photo opportunity and lets me see waterlillies. Great all year, but don't miss a day in spring and another in the fall.
