about National Heritage Museum:
Inside are four galleries which house temporary and permanent exhibits. Each gallery provides a printed family guide to help explain areas of interest. A simulated colonial kitchen is sure to add a pinch of American flavor to your child's visit. Another popular destination is the library, a cozy spot for children to browse through its substantial (though non-lending) collection of children's books.
Special Events and Programs: In addition to exhibits, the museum hosts concerts, lectures, and preschool story hours. Its Second Saturday program features family entertainment, for which admission is charged.
The Heritage Shop offers shoppers reproductions, souvenirs, gifts, and books. Children, of course, will quickly find their way to the toys and candies.
If hunger strikes during your visit consider a stop at the Courtyard Cafe. This inviting family restaurant serves baked goods, soups, sandwiches, salad, and more from 11am-2pm, Tuesday through Saturday.
