    Button Museum

    by ellyse Written Mar 7, 2006

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The museum has a wide collection of various kinds of buttons. The methods of display aren't wonderful but the part of the museum where they display the machinery originally used to make buttons out of shells is unique and well worth a look.
