  • Unique place and great location. It was freezing cold that day and we walked into the strong wonderful heat and experienced a lot of interesting things. They had everything from an interactive map of recent earthquakes to war trophies from World War 2. Definitely worth a visit while in town.
  • Very informative. An earthquake machine that shows you how destructive an earthquake can be, that you personally control. Civil relics and a civil war rifle my brother in law donated
  • This is an absolute gem of a museum when it comes to their local history. Not at all the stuffy high-browed place you might expect. This is a must,-stop location when you're in that area.
  • This museum may be small compared to a few others, but it is an amazing place to visit and learn. The staff was very friendly, too.
  • Small but nice museum. Informative lovely hostess.
