CONFUSING?
Google map shows Logic Puzzle Museum location, which is correct, 
and this is also the Same Address as the Top Museum, but it doesn't show Top Museum
The photo shows a Logic Puzzle Museum photo which is correct, 
but when visiting Top Museum you will not be doing puzzles as these are 2 different museums. 
Check hours for each museum.
These 2 museums share the same entrance door, same phone number, 
but are NOT OPEN AT THE SAME TIME.
 
LOOK OUT!   Internet maps are not up to date with the many changes in Burlington.  
WRONG STREET:  GPS often takes you to Mill Street(one block over from us) but NOT OUR street of Milwaukee Ave.

GREAT UNIQUE FUN
 
once you get here: despite puzzling roads & maps,  road construction that make your head spin and parking rules.

.................................................................................................................

ALERT  EVERYONE: Mapquest will show you where we are downtown,
 but none of these internet sites are up to date now that the bypass has opened in mid Nov.2010
So we are updating directions, as there are many changes.  Do call ahead anyhow, to double check hours.
