Berman Museum of World History Reviews
The Berman Museum houses an unusual collection of items that was gathered by a former American spy. Because the collector traveled to so many different locations and did a variety of things, the colle... more »

I had heard a lot of stories about this infamous museum and the mystery and gossip surrounding the Bermans and their collection, so I had high expectations upon arriving. I was impressed by the large number of objects on display and the unique, rare weapons, but was disturbed and disgusted to see live and dead insects in so many of the display cases. I saw dead lady bugs and wasps in about 70% of the cases and even watched a lady bug crawl across and unprotected WWI era manuscript. I saw many bug eaten didactics and labels that were peeling or poorly printed on cheap copy paper. I also saw multiple spelling errors on the wall text. There are hundreds of objects and artifacts in this museum that obviously are not being cared for as they should be, which is a real shame, since this is such a unique, unusual, impressive collection. If the glass had been clean, the labels professionally made, no peeling tape inside the display cases, and no dead insects sitting on the objects, I would give this museum 4 stars. As it is, the Berman Museum really needs to step up it's game or the objects won't be in good condition for much longer.
Great museum with lots of good exhibits ranging from the wild west to the ancient east of Asia.
For such a small town, this museum was absolutely incredible. I'll never forget this place.
Really cool place. Must see for weapon enthusiasts.
Unbelievable artifacts for a small town . Well organized clean professional.Most of all fun. My son and I will forever be linked and remember this place love it .
