What an amazing find. You can browse through a world class collection without the hustle and bustle of a big city crowd or traffic. A wonderful collection. Well worth the drive. My students loved the interactive activities of their education department. My personal favorite is TuTu the mummy.

From Jennifer on 08/03/10

A great museum literally filled with treasures. While the works of art are awesome, I have to admit that my favorite part of the Mabee-Gerrer Museum are the artifacts like the shrunken heads, mummy and mummified cat.
