I attended a lecture about Zelda Fitzgerald. It was wonderful! It lasted close to an hour and I easily could have listened to more. The presenter was well-prepared and knew his subject matter. He had a slide presentation that was good. There was a lively question and answer session after the talk. I will look forward to attending another event.

Very small, not much of anything right now but the new location to come I'm sure will be amazing!

90% of the art is done by high schoolers who aren't very good. The poor art is complemented by it's small size. Wait till the real museum opens up again.
