  • 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.
