“Very nice museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012

This museum is so very nice. It covers history back to the local Indians. The firetrucks in the basement are worth seeing. The exhibits are well organized. The entire museum is very clean and cheerful. It was a highlight of our visit to Mt. Airy.

“Just look for the bell tower”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2012

The museum is in the heart of downtown; the building with the bell tower.

I always take our guests here. It is our only real museum (I live in Elkin). But, for a small town, the museum is done very professional and is pretty extensive.

Because of the museum, I learned a bit of new things about the area that I love and live. After the museum visit, I go to the granite quarry and the old resort/hotel that burned down. The resort is featured in the museum, and has a sulfur spring with lots of minerals in the water. Once some folks had come from Winston to fill up gallons and gallons of gugs with the water.

Don't forget to checkout the fire engines in the basement.
