  • I love these types of Museums. There is nothing fancy but you can tell someone who really loves the history of the local area took the time to set everything up. There is a little of everything. From the history of the cotton fields, to the geological rocks in the area and too the Nuclear tests done at the ranges. There is a small train exhibit that is VERY detailed. This place is not huge, so you can be in and out in an hour. Admission is free, but they have a donation box. Drop a few dollars in to help them out. This is not spectacular, but it is an absolute must do when in town.
  • We were happy to see the building was a decent size so we knew there would be lots to see. There are bronze sculptures out in the front as you walk to the front door. Someone greets you as you come in and there is a register book to sign in stating your name and city of origin. They have alot of information about the cotton industry that was a big thing up into the 1970's and the agriculture of the area during the mining for the war effort. There is also a room that is about the nuclear history in the area which is called the atomic room. Lots of visual representations that help explain a dark part of history. They accept donations as a way to stay open so please throw something in the pot to keep these great little treasures open for everyone to see.
