  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Very nice smaller museum. A lot of interesting things have happened in New Madrid. The entire family enjoyed this museum far more than some of the bigger more expensive ones we have visited.
  • 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.
