  • Very small, but well put together museum.
  • Situated in a old historic building, this museum has a small but very nice collection of artifacts, photos, and explanatory info about Green River & the county history. It includes mining, ethnic, railroad, river, and social history. There is a small gift shop. Admission is free and parking on the street is free. Well worth a visit.
