  • This quiant museum posts a great overview of the history of the region, highlighting the beer production, whiskey rebellion, local artists, and the glass and rubber factories that helped the town survive. The loss of the industries is hard to overstate, but it us great seeing the history remembered while the town thrives.
  • Terribly small and currently a massive construction maze. It was quite obvious who sponsored this museum. I hated that WAY too much was donated to one company. It shouldn't be called a county museum, instead it should be named after the only company they even acknowledge.
  • Great little museum on local history
  • Nice museum exhibits that are well planed and executed.
  • Whenever my husband and I travel to Western Maryland to visit friends, we make sure we stop at the Allegany Museum to experience this gem of a museum. With each visit, we learn more of the significance of this area in the State of Maryland and nationwide. The oversight of this museum has been thoroughly and sensitively handled. The exhibits have been keenly developed to demonstrate the importance of Allegany County in the industrial revolution, as well as the crucial part it played in the development of the transportation system and coal industry of the United States. You will find that the Allegany Museum will appeal to both adults and children and you will come away with a fuller understanding and appreciation of this pristine, beautiful mountain area.
