Location and What's Nearby

Of course, one of the most enjoyable options while spending an afternoon exploring the area is eating fare at a restaurant within traveling distance of the museum. The most proximate restaurant is Matthew's Place, a wonderful location to have a bite to eat at on your way to checking out this museum.

Also within a short distance, you will have eateries like Monte's Place and Sugar And Spice Restaurant so if you're lucky, at least one of these close by options will humor the entire party.
