  • Small but reasonable prices. The staff is very friendly. The museum is well worth a stop. It's a small town museum but very educational, especially for anyone in the county. The gift shop had very fair prices and the museum had items that kids could touch and interact with. The whole place took about 30-40 minutes to go through at a good pace.
  • This is a nice little museum. Its well worth a visit. Fun things for kids and adults. The oldest ham was amazing.
  • This is a great small town museum with hands on exhibits for the kids and a Ham Cam! Live on the Internet while you look at the world's oldest ham. Smithfield is small town at its best.
  • A very cool local museum.
  • Packs so much history in about the area. You can see things from the oldest ham to the oldest peanut! I led a group of kids during a Vacation Bible School program through this museum, and there was something for everyone!
