Some of the cool maps inside the museum:





Charles Werrebroeck (right), who brought all the bricks from Belgium
about 1900 to build the house that is now home to the museum (below).

The house is a beautiful representation of old-world Belgium architecture and design.


Pretty fall flowers attract loads of bumblebees,
at the entrance to the museum.
