Although Cassilly passed away in 2011, the museum is perpetually under construction as new features are added or improved thanks to a ragtag group of 20 artists known affectionately as the Cassilly Crew.

Absolutely recommend it! The staff who work there building things are all amazing makers, too. Skilled craftspeople, but always experimenting, always willing to try something new. I know there happen to be some adafruit parts buried in a few of the exhibits a friend of mine works on!
