I must say that the Museum & Arts Organization has certainly changed since the last time I visited in March of 2014 when the hired staff left. They have become an all volunteer staff and have all new board members. They have the community support and have really spruced up their facilities. The Art exhibits are really nice and the Docents are friendly & helpful. Keep up the good work!

There is a lot of ethical concerns with the way this place is operating since the old director left in 2010. There are conflicts of interest, misuse of restricted funds, and a general discontent, though unspoken as the new directors has favorites called Lap Dogs who would tattle on anyone who disagreed with his highness. I would be very concerned about donating money to this organization. I used to volunteer there but left when I saw what he was doing to people in the organization.

Really nice place and the remodel was overwhelming when I saw it for the first time again last summer after being away from the area for 4 years. Docents were so helpful and sweet. The lady that does the art was there and she was so nice to let us in on a Monday when they were hanging a new show.
