    Interesting, clean, informative museum. It operates solely on donations, so technically it's free. We did donate $. A good place to go when it's hot or cold outside.  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.

    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.
