  • Worth the visit and the donation for entrance fee but the exhibt has seen better days. I hope the non-profit organization that manages the exhibit can find the funds and vision to make the fixes and update the overall exhibit. I would encourage visiting in order to provide support and learn something new.
  • This museum was a fun little trip backwards in time. I'd definitely recommend it if you're in the area.
  • learned alot i didnt even know
  • Very educational. History preserved here.
  • Powerful experience about the tradgety of the floods but also dedication to the town's resilience. Worth a stop in addition to the National Park Service memorial site 14 miles up the road to the actual dam is good to to help get sense of the scale.
