Small but interesting. Nice break from the heat of the day (90). We enjoyed the people that helped us as well.

A nice small museum that gives a good history from the Native Americans to modern day times. Learning about the granite was especially interesting.

This museum has a lot of interesting things to see. Many of them were a surprise to me, and I live here. Definitely worth a visit, but take your time or you will miss some really neat stuff.

If you like to know more about the place you visit, this is a very good museum. Lots of local history and how Mt. Airy and the surrounding area came to be.

I have lived in Mt. Airy all of my life (except military and school). Recently went to the museum with out of town visitors and was stunned at all the memories that came flooding back. Gives a great history of our entire area. Highly recomend

Incredible history of the area. I highly recommend this place for only a $6 admission. It's a real surprise in a small town. Adults and children will find things to interest them.
