  • 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.
  • 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!
  • What a treasure !!! located on Main Street in Smithfield Virginia. Well-appointed, clean, helpful staff ,and educational; it really should not be overlooked. After all Where else can you find a 126 year old peanut and a 90 year old "pet" ham. ?
  • Interesting museum filled with the history of both the county area and the meat industry that grew up around it. My two small kids had fun as they have some hands on stuff for them to do.
  • I like ham.
