  • One of the best museums you will ever visit. It is pure Frankfort through and through and you get a great feel for the history of the community. They have the friendliest and nicest staff I've ever met in any museum. They don't mind to chat with you as long as you have a mind to do so. It's clean and uncluttered and everything is thoroughly explained.
  • This was very interesting to tour. The gentleman at the front desk was very nice and full of information.
