  • I liked the feeling coming inside and seeing items you can buy at that place where you don't really see it at any other Walmart locations. There was alot of history and information there that I did not know about, and it was worth knowing. There was also a great greeting. This place was definitely worth going too!
  • This place was really fun. They had a cute little candy shop in front and when I saw this, I was confused because it was a museum of Walmart. But it was actually really interesting. Would recommend checking it out if you are in the area!
