  • We visited this museum free of charge, and we were impressed by the level of detail on the historical interpretive plaques outside of the museum. Though the interpretation could be modernized a bit, it was on par with other local history museums we have visited recently. Inside of the museum, the Wagon Days merchandise and framed posters from past Wagon Days festivities were a real treat. Though sorry to have missed the Wagon Days parade this year, we hope to come back one day!
  • A fun bit of history in this area. Excellent for children.
