  • This is a small museum that is good to take children to learn some history by visualizing. It is clean, well lit and not so crammed you can't walk around. WELL laid out.  more »

  • Our children love to visit the museum. The children's section is a great place for children to learn through playing and exploring. The "adult" exhibits are excellent too and our children love exploring the history of our region. The Highlands Museum is a gem for Ashland. We have also become members. Our membership allows us to not only visit as often as we would like but allows us free entrance into museums nationwide. Thus far, we have visited COSI in Columbus on multiple occasions and the Denver Museum of Nature and Science in Colorado. That alone, has paid for the annual membership 10x over. Great staff, great exhibits, safe and clean. We love these folks!
  • Good visit. Needs to finish upper floors and fill in with more exhibits. Should contact Winchester's museum they are overloaded with exhibits and are turning many away.
  • Fun time. The place looks great
  • So much history here to learn about. Great place for kids parties.
  • Love bringing the little ones here and they really enjoy it. It's a safe place for kids to run and play and learn.
