Interesting, well presented material, in a lovely setting.

Lovely little Museum, information about local history. Lots of history that I never knew about. Reasonably priced with discount for seniors.

This is a lovely small museum to do when it is too cold outside. The kids even enjoyed it. Would love to go again.

The weekend we were there was a special open day. The entertainment from the Pumice Valley Whoopee band was great old time music. The lady has a great voice.

We really enjoyed all the exhibits. The museum is small but packs in plenty to see for a very reasonable entry price.
