The tour was very interesting. It did not really focus much on Fathers in History but it was an interesting tour, several pictures were discussed, great to see that beautiful organ and I hope to be able to attend some of the organ events and other exhibits the MAG has .

Loved hearing the stories of women in our community leading and making Rochester a better place for all. Sarah's murals are a must see.
