  • Excellent displays with informative write ups. The well informed staff was friendly and available for questions. This museum is much larger than it appears from the outside. The exhibits were numerous with a wide range of subjects related to the history of the local area. This must see sight is a bargain.
  • Lots of interesting things to see and read about. Great learning experience for those who truly appreciate and enjoy history!
