Penelope the Postal Pachyderm is our newest acquisition to the museum !!! Well named.


You know that old expression "He had a cow"? Well, being a big guy, I had an elephant ! Really I did. I went all the way to Reed City Michigan to pick her up. That's right our elephant is a she and that is very important because we need to name her. Stop in to the museum in order to meet ???? I guarantee you have never met another elephant like her before. Thanks Mr. Ulrich for taking me to Michigan to pick her up! More info to come....stay tuned.


Hello Everyone:

This is literally a last call for our New England Trips. Yes that's right both trips. Our nine day 5 state New England sweep has two scheduled dates Trip #1 September 26-October 4th Trip #2 October 10-October 18th.

During the most magnificent season of the year touring the most colorful displays of nature, we are escorting you across the Catskill Mtns of New York, Green Mountains of Vermont, White Mountains of New Hampshire and the coast of Maine from Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park to the Bay of Portland and several places in between. You will travel from 4200 feet above sea level right down to the sandy shores of the Atlantic Ocean.

This is the trip of a lifetime. Everyone needs to experience New England during prime fall color. Everything is presented to you in all its elegance and variety. If you are a foodie, this is your tour; if you are in love with nature, this is your tour; if you are in love with the mountains, or the seashore, or unique attractions, or visiting off-the-beaten path, then this is your tour.

Most importantly, I don't know of a better group of people to travel with. Fran and I are excited as we will join 92 of our dearest friends on an amazing journey.

The 15 foot high walls are all exposed brick highlighted with LED up lighting. The floor and ceiling are all hardwood. Bathrooms are now conveniently located on the same floor.
