Beautiful local historical museum

The displays change out every so often. The sign out front will list the current display. They also house a local historical library where you can do research.

nice facility; small - can peruse in 2-3 hours w no problem. membership reduces cost if you anticipate multiple visits. changing exhibits, so not always the same displays. local and national exhibits. a good place to take the kids, especially if you reside in the P-C-N area.

The visit to this museum was like walking down the street of an old village. One room had some interesting history about Abraham Lincoln, along with an employee to discuss it.

Plymouth is fortunate to have this attractive well-run and ever- changing museum which reflects the love, interest, and support of the local community. Of special interest is the fine collection of Abraham Lincoln memorabilia, a valuable gift from a local resident. An active, imaginative and hard-working staff of mostly volunteers assures that the museum is well worth the visit. There... More

Visited before the Christmas holiday & enjoyed the decor from yesteryear. The tree was decorated with all the glass bulbs & lights that I remember as a child. The displays of the past are well displayed & fun to pick out all the things from the past. For the older folks its a special walk through memory lane.

We really enjoyed talking to them. The upstairs of the museum is called Main St. and looks like a small town Main Street would. I really enjoyed the downstairs, which... More

My family was looking forward to learning about local history as well as seeing the "Lincoln" exhibit. The first floor was dedicated to Christmas with each exhibit representing a different movie. Mildly entertaining since the exhibits could only loosely be associated with the chosen movies. For example, The Nutcracker was an exhibit of old dolls, Elf was an exhibit with... More

Superb repository of local history; a trip back in time. Local history is downstairs, special exhibits on ground floor. Courteous and knowledgeable attendants, most of whom are volunteers.

It is a small museum but has a nice collection devoted to Lincoln In particular I like the life size model of the man and his wife. He surely was tall and thin as the proverbial rail.
