  • My husband and I arrived at the official closing of the museum, but we walked around the grounds for free. There are plenty of plaques that explain what you are looking at for each of the buildings.....  more

  • My mother and I stopped in for a tour and the lady that greeted us was just terrific. She stopped her work on the yard and helped us get set up inside to do a self-guided tour in there, then she met us at the front to take us into each of the buildings nearby. The Myra Museum is a neat building in itself and the exhibits inside are full of examples and information about life in the Red River Valley. The flood information was fascinating and we liked the oxcart too. They have several REALLY interesting buildings that you can walk into and look around. The post office had a full bank of post boxes and teller window. The gas station is just amazing and we loved the schoolhouse too - it reminded my mom of her school as a child. The grounds are gorgeous with flowers and a nice curved sidewalk leading to each building and the tour guide was knowledgeable, but didn't overwhelm us with info. She gave us some info and then let us ask questions, which we liked. For only $8, the tour was a real value. They had restrooms in the museum and parking in the shade. The only negative was a distracting beeping noise in the building the entire time we were walking around, it may have been an alarm or something and I'm sure it was temporary. All in all, a great stop that I and my mom would both recommend.
  • Such a great place, the people and the history are amazing. Looking forward to the car shows and the live music.
