  • All of the exhibits are well done, well lit and well explained. Needs an overview/introduction. The old equipment is interesting as well. There is also some railroad equipment outside. A nice caboose,...  more »

  • Great free museum focused on the local paper industry. They have a lot of machinery for harvesting trees They even have a train station with a steam locomotive.
  • Nice outdoor area with a train you can climb around on and a shady trail to walk.
  • We really enjoyed the museum. Admission is FREE but donations are gratefully accepted. We decided to check it out since it was too chilly to hike at the State Park. There is a great hands on area for the kids to play. My kids really enjoyed the train and vehicles on the backside of the property but it was really cold and we couldn't stay out in that weather for too long.
  • The new building sucks but it is still the best Forestry Museum around. There is no nature trail anymore since they filed the insurance claim of all trees lost even though that trail was intact after the tornado. They just bulldozed the entire thing and made part of it a parking lot. But there are 5 Pokestops and a Pokegym.
  • Awesome place loved it
