I stop at most Welcome Centers along the interstate highways and entering any region for the first time, and always look for the tourist information signs in every town. Many Welcome Centers have displays or mini museums about the area. No historic displays or museum here at this one, just a typical room full of brochures like you would find... More

The rest areas in this area are much nicer than the ones in The western states. They are clean and safe and many like this one have picnic areas for passing tourists.

Lots of info and pamphlets to find things to do. Clean, nice workers. Worth the stop. We were exploring Richmond for the day and found some interesting activities that we would not have known about if we had not stopped. Wayne County Historical museum is a definite must.

To get the most out of your visit to Richmond, stop here first. We planned a one week stay and found there’s so much to do, we could have stayed longer. They’ll give you directions and brochures to the things that fit your interest whether it be history, antique shopping, eating, site seeing, the great outdoors, shopping, etc. There’s so... More

I was reading someone else's response about it needing to be more child friendly and I agree. We stopped here on the way back home from an out of town trip. My youngest son had been in the car for a few hours and was wound up. (With the type of business this is, I would assume they get a... More

For a U. S. 40 museum, not really much to see. Just brochures and a few local displays, etc. Really disappointing for an Avid Rt. 40/Old National Road Traveler who has covered most of the route across Maryland, Pennsylvania, Ohio (when possible), and Indiana.

Lots of helpful information. Very kind and helpful attendants. They also seem to interact with the downtown. In the spring they had a lovely fairy encounter.
