Sandwich native Thornton Burgess created such characters as Peter Rabbit (the American version), Jimmy Skunk, Sammy Jay, and Bobby Raccoon. This museum dedicated to his work is an excellent place to bring in children during any time of the year. During the summer, the museum offers a regular schedule of story times.
