  • What a gem! It's small but I really enjoyed this museum and so did my 6 year old son.
  • Great place to learn about local history with nice people willing to share stories. Kid friendly.
  • It was cute little three-room museum. The exhibits were very informing but it was obvious that they could be so much more. Definitely pay a visit and make a donation, as the museum is FREE.
  • Nice place to visit. Has local historical artifacts and lore. Nice grounds to walk.
  • History of people it's community and way of life is always Five Stars. We salute Cortez.
