Visitor Tips and News About Angel Museum
Beautifully displayed collection of angels from all over - including about 600 donated by Oprah Winfry (given to her by fans after she commented that she had never seen a black angel depicted). Breathtaking and awe-inspiring. I was crying joyfully going through the collection.
Young children through teens who like angels will love this museum. As most of the angels are in cases, there is little danger of damage, although small children should always be watched. There are a multitude of angel [docents] to help with this task. I must admit, I was surprised to note very few noticeably male angels.
Also available are some angel books and the history of how the museum came to be.[Darlene H, 07/06/2010]
