Nice local museum. Will be better when they are able to take over the dinosaur museum next door which was was already closed for the season. Especially liked the 50's and 60's current exhibit. The match the sound to the machine was a great way to give younger generations a chance to experience things we grew up with.

Stopped to see the dinosaur museum. I thought the $8 fee was a little steep for such a small place but paid anyways, with a smile. The rocks and mineral displays were interesting. I would not recommend it for small children but my kids (9, 15 and 17) enjoyed it. The Joachim Museum right next door has free admission and... More

Straightaway I was impressed with the manner of the lady who came out to speak with us as soon as we walked through the door. Courteous, helpful, friendly and it was obvious that she had a great sense of humour too.

Visited the Visitor Center along with Dinosaur Museum and Machinery museum. Both were small but interesting. A good break for a couple of hours if you are traveling.

This is a smallish museum, but narrowly focused and packed with great stuff. The descriptions were easy to read, and they layout was engaging. Was worth the fee.

The price is right, and this museum is so much fun. You'll see so many retro things that will make you say, "we had one of those when I was growing up!" Kids get to try out the machines we grew up with, like a typewriter, vintage check printer, Atari, and I saw the same green dial wall phone that... More

We decided to stop at the dinosaur museum and hit up the Joachim museum next door! It was really cool! A little surprised as I did not know what to expect! There were many activities to do of these from our childhood and things we grew up hearing about from our parents. I liked this more than the Dino. museum.... More

Privately owned and operated with excellent examples and displays. Book shop had good gifts. Convenient location and very well lit - signs explained what we were looking at.

We stopped here to see The Dinosaur Museum as well as to see the machinery museum. Both were good museums to see. There is also a "historic" type town to see. Also there is a tourism information center where you can ask questions and pick up literature for other areas you might be visiting for your trip. Parking is free... More
