I loved the model of downtown Pulaski! It's a little before my time but my dad remembers a lot of it during that time and could point out much of it. I too remember a lot of it... read more

This was a very interesting place to visit if you can catch it when it is open. Most of the items that where in this museum came from the train station across the street and the model train set came from a local resident of Pulaski.
