  • Gonna give it 4 stars for being a unique presence off the beaten path. Unfortunately was closed, off-season. Can't say anymore about the museum... didn't go in.
  • We LOVE the HAMMER MUSEUM!! These folks are so hospitable and the hammers on display are so unique! Who would have known that a museum of HAMMERS was so awesome!?!?!? Be sure to stop in each week to find out which one Sofia chooses as HAMMER OF THE WEEK!!! (ALSO: our mascot Salmon Ella got some great smooches from these folks. Truly, this is a site worth your while!!!!!)
  • If I could, I'd give it a sixth star for the staff. Who would think a hammer museum would be so interesting? It just goes to show that necessity is the mother of invention, and the incredible creativity of people when faced with a problem.
  • Jake Novinger had one of the largest collections in the lower 48 (Millersburg PA) this rivaled the size. One sid note the cool kinetics were awesome!!
  • It's more fun than expected. Not much else going on Haines.
