  • Small but has alot of history of the Hampton area. Learned alot about the city I live on and has a cute gift shop along with books that the authors come and sign.
  • Come and learn about Hampton's history !! They also have great events every month ranging from musical guests to reinactments of historical events !!!
  • NASA run forum was fun. The museum as well was decent.
  • Great small museum loaded with treasures found locally and donated. I wished for a few more places to sit nearby due to physical pain.
  • Great museum with Indian culture, British settlement, Revolutionary War, and Civil War.
