  • It's packed with vehicles and contraptions of all descriptions. It's great that they've saved all this stuff. We didn't have a lot of time, so give yourself some time to listen to all the audio stuff and read about everything. It's definitely a great place to take school children to learn about history.
  • A great stop right off the Interstate, it provides a nice place to walk and stretch. The memorials are well kept and interesting to walk around. Inside the Cole Museum, there is a wealth of historical vehicles and equipment. It is worth an hour to stop and explore.
  • My Girls and I Loved this place. It's Awesome, Cheap, and Provides so much more than just history. There's much to be seen under Mr. Coles Roof. He has such an awesome collection of toys. The Coolest part is a Real Train the kids can climb on and imagine being a conductor. That was my favorite part of the Cole Museum Experience.
  • This is an Awesome well put together museum. We went in July and was very impressed with the selection of items on display. I would rate this museum as one of the best that I have seen.
  • This was a great museum with lots to see. The kids and us parents really enjoyed ourselves. Kids are free
