  • We've lived in mount ida and only just recently made our way to this little museum. We really enjoyed it: it's like a little trip back in time. Really cool relics of the past and information all about the history of montgomery county. Definitely worth checking out. The staff was really kind, too and they plan to make a section for hands on kid stuff in the future which gives us a good reason to go back again!
  • Drove here just for the museum and my family's old tradition of meeting at the graves. I met nobody at the graveyard and the museam was closed. I'm not going to give up.
