Our museum houses the collections of many people. There are things which will interest people of all ages. We hope to continue in the spirit of the founder and add to the collection at the Board sees fit. The major projects on agenda for now is up dating the grounds and working on some of the needed repairs. We are also exploring ways to increase attendance


Our museum was founded by Earnest and Dorthy Barrow in 1976. They wanted to have a place where they could share their extensive collection, which was acquired in their travels, with the public. They set it up as a non-profit foundation with a board of directors to govern it. That would allow it to continue after their deaths. As they aquired more items,they built more buildings. Today we have 3 major building and their home for people to tour.

We are a design and fabrication shop that encourages play in museums, organizations and brands so they may spread the roots of their mission. Play is a powerful tool because it tests assumptions, makes connections and establishes a positive emotional memory to concepts. Incorporating play (interactives) in your project can actually boost diversity, loyalty and engagement which will ultimately strengthen your mission.
