Heritage Museums & Gardens celebrates American culture and inspires people of all ages to explore, discover and learn together. Located on 100 acres of gardens and nature trails, Heritage holds a significant collection of specialty gardens, water features, and sculpture. Hidden Hollow, an interactive family-friendly area, allows for exploration of the natural world and learning about the environment. Heritage boasts three gallery buildings housing antique automobiles, American folk art, historical artifacts, a vintage carousel, and special exhibitions. For the 2014 season, the featured exhibitions will be "Wicked Bugs: The Exhibit" based on the book by Amy Stewart that explores the world of diabolical botanicals and "David Rogers' Big Bugs," an outdoor exhibition of 10 gigantic bug sculptures made from nature materials.
