  • Vernon is a small city but the museum was a delightful surprise. They have done a really good job of creating very interesting displays which really educate you to the history of the area. They have a treasure trove of all manner of objects from the past as well as the stories of many people who settled the area and their contributions. I went as I was accompanying my elderly father but I ended up enjoying it as much as him.
  • Nice curator and several blasts from the past!
  • Excellent
  • Good place for Vernon history
