Before you make your visit to the museum, be sure to check our hours of business along with location of the museum. While Auburn is a quaint little town there are other museums to visit and some historic houses on Main Street that are worth a drive by. Then when you are hungry there are quite a few unique places to eat and then head to the antique shops in town. Lodging is not a problem in Auburn if you care to take your time in our museum and need another day on your visit.
