  • This place was definitely a hidden gem. We were marking places off of our passports for AR. The lady that worked there was super helpful and explained the answers to every question we asked. My kids were fascinated!
  • The staff was super sweet and the place was...amazing!! So much information and nicely laid out for visitors. We can't wait to go back. 😁
  • A fantastic museum with local info. Several times a year they do “family day” and you can visit for free, plus they have crafts and demos going on that are really fun! We have made our own paper from pulp, seen apples pressed in a 100+ yr old apple press, made fancy paper airplanes, made animal prints in plaster, made bird feeders, and too much more to list!! It’s a great place!!
  • This place is one of the more interesting and important places in the county, has tons of information that would have long been forgotten by time. If you need help they are more than willing and might I add capable to assist you, genealogy, cave, mines, topographical maps of the area it's all here and many interactive exhibits. Definitely a great stop.
  • Looks really neat. Never been inside though. One day...
