We stopped in here out of curiosity & I'm glad we did! The museum is staffed with very friendly volunteers who are eager to share their knowledge. We learned a lot on our tour and enjoyed the ice cream offered for a very reasonable price before we left.

The period displays above old Tavern are neat, accessible behind stage in upstairs theatre. More icecream flavors/sugar free is desirable!

Interesting, well curated, much enjoyed - we had planned on visiting the Hamilton Wood Type Museum but it was closed so visited here instead. Glad we did!

This is just a very interesting place! Go have some ice cream and then explore the collection of things in the musuem. The Washington House is staffed by volunteers, We met just a delightful lady who took the time to sit down with us and talk about the town and the "old days". It was a great experience for myself...

While visiting family in Two Rivers, we stopped here. Nice little place with volunteers eager to show you around. Best part was the ice cream before we left :)

Neat self-guided tour of old jail. Good if in the area, but not as a special destination. The volunteer was very nice and helpful.

The fantastic Ice Cream parlor gets even better when rhubarb is available. Charleton Heston's wife is from this town, there's a display for them among the rooms. A dancehall above has a muraled ceiling, accessable by stair chair, behind the stage, find many historically displayed rooms, volunteers provide for excellent operating hours.
