This museum was visited by us on a rainy day, but I would go back on any day. It's a great stop. There is lots of reading to do to take in extra stories of criminals past etc. But there is plenty to look at if you don't feel like reading. Every room was interesting and the tour guide was... More

Small museum with lots of history. Great place to go for young and old. Be sure to take the guided tour of the house. Hands on stations for children to learn and have fun. Very friendly staff!

we get lost in the history of this place each time we visit....the travelling exhibits set the standard and so blessed to have this place in small-town America.

A neat little museum the shows the history of the area includes an old cage style jail and history of the razor back name. Also attached is a house that shows how the middle class lived in the early 1900s. The museum is no charge and worth an hour of your time.

The museum shows the history not only of Rogers, but also Monte Ne, which is close by. There is also a room for kids to touch and experience items from the past. Fun and well worth the time.

This is a hands on museum. It has been expended recently, has a lot of Rogers history. It is free, within walking distant of the Daisy Air rife museum. Worth a visit.
