  • As an Eagle Scout I was excited to visit here. I came on a day when I literally had the museum to myself. I had a great time looking through the exhibits and learning more about Scouting than I had previous to my visit. I literally spent an afternoon here enjoying the exhibits and reminiscing my of years of Scouting. This is a great place for anyone interested in Scouting to visit.
  • Pretty amazing museum. Lots of exhibits and activities. The Norman Rockwell paintings are a must see.
  • Amazing history and an all day fun filled family trip.
