This museum, which was a house owned by the Glessners, has the largest collection of wood carvings by Isaac Scott. Like these, most of the items on display were made specifically for the Glessner family. I would suggest a movie in the park, where you are allowed to bring a picnic as well as a tour of the glessner house museum if you have the time. I'd planned to get an evening with the Curator, but we didn't have a group large enough, so if you're hoping to have an intimate tour of the collections and areas not shown to the public I would get at least 6 people together to enjoy an private look. You also have to have an appointment, which I wish they'd told me over the phone.
It's $10 for adults, $9 for seniors and students and children are $8. Wednesdays are free.
