  • Had a few hours before my flight so decided to check out this museum. A lot of fun exhibits. Loved learning about the history of scouting.
  • Great staff, awesome hands on displays, very educational, and free after 2pm. Be sure to stop by the amazing Scott So when you are done too. The deals are amazing!
  • 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.
  • Moving soon, but lots of fun activities for the kids. Norman Rockwell gallery was great.
  • 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.
