This is a very small museum, and has Girl Scout artifacts from all the years of their existence. It is not a house museum, like the Low birthplace, but is mostly of interest to former and current scouts. To me, the most interesting were the uniforms through the years. I even found the one I wore.

The interior is jam-packed with memorabilia about the vision of one woman that became a world-wide movement for girls and young women. Current (and alumnae!) scouts will enjoy touching base with the roots of GSA. Combine this with a... 更多

Girls loved it - they are new to scouting and were very interested - also got to get a special pin for visiting.
Thanks for bringing your girls to visit, volleydi. We think it's cool (and important) for all of our girls to... 更多
