  • 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.

  • 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.
