So enjoyed our visit to the museum. The curator gave us a tour and shared many interesting facts about the exhibits. This is a treasure that many in our area may not know about. If you have an interest in area history and war history you should visit.
Quirky local museum with an eclectic combination of the many areas Mansfield touched upon. The old timey robot and old pop bottles gave it a real solid Fallout vibe. Worth a visit.
