I went with my husband, my 11 year old son, and my (almost) 6 month old son. My oldest loves museums and wanted to come here. This museum was, by far, his favorite thing about our vacation. We parked across the street from the museum. There were plenty of parking spaces when we got there which was around 11am on... More

Despite it is a small Museum it have a good exhibition of history, including the replicas of Columbus boats. This Museum also has an area for kids which it is... More

Museum is very tidy and well kept, staff is extremely helpful and curteous. All the exhibits are detailed and spacious you won't feel crowded. It is a must see and prices are more than resonible.

This museum is a must-see, and requires at least 2 hours to touch on most of the subjects. We loved the "country store" where an actor presented what it would be like to shop in a country store in the late 1800s. Then, there was a play about space travel. You can walk through a representation of a ship from... More

So I must have failed somewhere in my reviewing of attractions to see that the replica of the ship was no longer located at the museum. That was really one of the reasons we went...oh well that was really my fault. Other then that the museum was pretty good: lots of displays on local history, geology, animals common to the... More

We are two adults and we took my parents and our two kids. Cost was $49.50. Overall, it is a mix of a few new exhibits and some old exhibits I remember from 20 years ago. They've made attempts at adding some interactivity but about half of those were not working. I noticed a few areas of large, empty spaces.... More
