  • Great place. Only thing-the Scout Store had closed the day before, permanently. The museum was going to close permanently in a few weeks as well. It is moving to Philmont. I am sure that will be nice too, but I am past happy we could see the original!
  • Fun place for scouts and families to visit. Best parts are the interactive exhibits, even adults have fun participating. For my older scout, the Order of the Arrow exhibit is the most interesting. The Norman Rockwell art exhibit is phenomenal. Big disappointment with the closing of the gift shop. Museum does need to update the famous persons section to include more current individuals. Michael Jordan and Jeff Sessions were the two persons my scout recognized.
  • Great experience for my boys and me to see so much of the history of the Boy Scouts of America. Amazing collection of Norman Rockwell paintings and even an interactive display of pinewood derby cars.
  • Loved it. This place is great. Sorry to see it moving.
  • As an eagle scout I enjoyed the museum. I'm sad that the museum is moving, but I was glad I saw it before it moved.
