The tour of the museum ends with an 18 minute presentation in the theater (narrated by Sean Connery). I found the presentation enjoyable as I did the other presentations in the different rooms.

Wow---this may be the longest post I have ever taken time to read. I always like Jack Nicholas --and enjoyed seeing his museum, through your photos. Thanks so much.

He and Arnold Palmer were always favorites of mine. SO much classier and better role models than today's golfers such as Tiger Woods. GADS!!!!

Hugs,
Betsy
