  • Fantastic museum, especially for the size. At only $7 for admission its a steal. So much to see and learn. They have a great collection of classic cars, a really cool blacksmith shop, an old school house and a normal family home too. If you are in the area you should stop by and give yourself 2 or 3 hours.
  • Did not expect this to be as interesting & diverse a collection. Tons of pieces covering such a varying scope of cultures & eras. The staff was friendly, accommodating, & willing to help if needed. I will be going back.
  • This truly is one of the finest small museums! I have been many times and still learn something new every time I visit. The very knowledgeable staff are kind and ready to share their knowledge.
  • Great museum, friendly staff and wonderful exhibits. Great place to take the kids... Festivals are fun for all ages. Depending on event will have actors from the past, Indians and dancing, civil war and spinning.. Halloween is my favorite time of year check their website..
  • This museum is really worth visiting! In addition to their collections, they a lot of special events and living history exhibits. Their Halloween party is my favorite.
