  • An excellent museum with very high quality displays produced by volunteers. Walking through the museum and looking at the displays you would think the entire place was laid out, designed and produced by professional museum designers. Well worth a visit. Especially if you live in Champaign County and haven't ever been there.
  • This place is a wealth of history! Between an old cattle scale, a grocery mart that's from the 1800's (inactive ) and a two story museum I am really surprised more people dont go here. A hidden gem right in front of everyone!
