  • Great collection. Enjoyed it very much. Putnam house tour is definitely worth the time. They also have a deal where you can save on entrance fees if you're also going to the Ohio River Museum.
  • Perfect pioneer history. For kids the interactive benches and coal miner dress up engages. Probably the best feature is the Putnam house on its original site encased within the museum!
