  • Excellent museum, packs a lot of quality content into a small space. Can't beat the price either! Admission gives 20% off of your parties meal at the excellent Saw Mill resturant near by.
  • Interesting navel museum near Lake Champlain, good history lesson.
  • Amazing historical information on local sites, people are so helpful too! The Blacksmith and bladesmithing classes are so worth the time and investment!
  • Great exhibits, great staff, great location. Family friendly, relaxed atmosphere. People here seem to love what they are doing.
  • A working museum, the staff demonstrate the skills of the past. A very nice collection, the classes are very informative.
