Calling this place a museum is a bit of a stretch. It is mostly a collection of things collected by townspeople over time and donated for display. There are two rooms with portraits of the presidents and their wives which is nice, but has nothing at all to do with anything else in the building. That said, the artifacts on display are interesting and there is plenty to look at. There are some recreated buildings, a caboose, and a collection of mining equipment out back, too. The displays are lacking comprehensive descriptions, but most of it is self-explanatory. It is quite obvious though that this is a homespun effort and not a professionally curated museum, which is part of the charm as far as I'm concerned.
You get a free ticket to this place when you visit the Route 66 Museum nearby, which is the only reason we stopped by. We did enjoy it and the (very) old ladies working the front desk told us we could come back as often as we want to with the ticket. There is a small gift shop also.
You'll definitely get some small-town charm by visiting this museum, so give it a shot if you are passing though. Don't worry about crowds, we were the only two people there in the middle of the day.
