We stopped by while in town for the day and really enjoyed our visit. The woman at the front table was very nice and informative about the house and the history of objects in the house. We enjoyed the story of the the Lincoln Flag and the actress shoes with adjustable heels in the case. The woodwork of the house... More

We stopped by on a Sunday afternoon and was greeted by a very friendly dog. The lady and gentleman at the museum seemed very knowledgeable about the history of the artifacts in the museum and the building itself. Housing a steel beam from the Twin Towers and the Lincoln room with a flag from the Ford theatre bearing blood stains... More

We were greeted by Ken as we walked in, he was very friendly, and knew everything about this place. The Lincoln flag and the story of how it ended up in Milford, PA is a good one, but I won't ruin it for you. Stop in and see for your self. This is a self guided tour but we were... More

Went for a quick Wednesday tour of the museum. A friendly dog followed us throughout the building including up the stairs. The highlight was the Lincoln room and the Lincoln Flag. It was a great over view of the region with a lot of diversity of information. The WWII posters and the information on the local camping tradition was great... More

If you have an extra hour it is worth the time and $10 to pay the museum a visit. Some interesting items. If you like civil war history you will like the museum.

I have had the opportunity to visit the Columns Museum a couple of times. Seeing the Lincoln Flag was awesome as well as the other historical things. I especially like the heat radiator with little shelves to keep food warm.

The Columns Museum is a great place to visit. The Museum Director, Lori Strelecki, beholds a tremendous amount of historical information and is excited about sharing it with all who visit. The Museum and the Historical Society hosts programs and events at their beautiful location and Lori continues to volunteer her time to educate our seniors at Twin Cedar's about... More

In the last few years I have done a lot of reading into the life of President Lincoln. I ahve tried to visit some of the sites that were important in his life. I never realized that there were so many artifacts close to my home. This is a great museum and is something that should be on every Lincoln... More

$5 and you see a piece of history- the flag that was placed under Lincoln's head after he was shot! Wow. That's a great item and a cheap price. They have 3 rooms downstairs with artifacts and about 4 upstairs. It takes about an hour, but it's a great place to check out.

The town historical society has gathered a nice little collection of artifacts here. Not extensive, but interesting on a small scale. The only really museum quality items are those related to Lincoln's death in the Ford Theater. Seeing his blood on the flag they wrapped around his head to stench the bleeding that night is a very powerful experience. I... More
