    If you were ever a Scout you should visit it before it closes and moves. They have exhibits that take you back to your scouting days. Take a tour as it will not be here long.  more »

    Nice history of Scouting in America. Unfortunately, will be closing September 3rd of 2017. Most of the collection will be on display at the Philmont Scout Ranch after the museum is closed.

    The Boy Scout museum was very nice. Lots of information. The film was interesting. Displays were nice. A great place to view Norman Rockwell paintings. The guide told us a lot of facts. However they are moving to Philmont NM. So you will have to see it there.
