    Was just a quickie. We stopped in on our way back from Tunica. Was very impressed with the History of the town. Didn't realize how much of U.S. was affected by the earthquake. Wish we would have went there for Vacation instead of Tunica.Would recommend a couple of days there to see more.

    Knowledgeable director. Interesting exhibits. The director could, in his normal voice, address a school bus full of kids on the last day of school and be heard easily.

    Friendly knowledgeable owner. Combined with river overlook and ice cream shop two blocks down, a worthwhile roadside diversion.
