The McM is a superb resource for homescholars. The staff and faculty are so excited and engaged about learning and reseach that it becomes contagious! The exhibits are varied and extremely accessible. There is also a tiny gift shop offering local artists works and nifty, cool toys and books for a very reasonable price.
