Typical of small-town museums, this one has a bit of everything. We had a great time poking around and learning more about the local history. The docents were super-helpful. more »
This was a fun place to visit with my daughter and grandchildren ages 7 and 4. They had a grand time and learned a lot about some of the history of our own county! So many beautiful artifacts, clothing, tools, ways of transportation, and examples of the ways of life back in the time of our early Presidents and folks from back to of about 200 years ago! I would highly recommend! 😄
Quaint regional museum. Lots of personal attention from curator who was thrilled to see us on a snow day. Some excellent quality static exhibits with historical accuracy and multi cultural point of view. Kids loved the "find the facts" scavenger hunt.
