  • The Highland Museum located in a portion of the former Parson's Department Store is a great venue for events. The enlarged photographs and the ever-changing presentations are great nostalgic reminders...  more »
  • Great to get a membership this allows you to visit other museums around the U.S beside here. Rainy afternoon with kids keeps them entertained for some time. Kept nice and staff friendly.

  • Love bringing the little ones here and they really enjoy it. It's a safe place for kids to run and play and learn.
  • A pretty good time. Maybe a little pricy, the basement has a good kids exhibit.
  • This is a wonderful place for children! They have an excellent play and exploration center downstairs.
  • It is a small museum with the 2nd floor being more hands off educational for older kids and adults BUT, don't miss the lower level which is FUN HANDS ON ACTIVITIES for kids of ALL ages!! πŸ‘ΆπŸΌπŸ‘­πŸ‘¬πŸ‘€πŸ‘‚πŸ»βœ‹πŸ»πŸ‘ƒπŸ»πŸ“πŸŽ‰πŸ πŸ€”β€οΈπŸ’›πŸ’šπŸ’™πŸ’œπŸ–βœοΈπŸ”ŽπŸ’―πŸ†’
