“Really well done”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013

As a former review said, "When you walk in the front door, you go un-oh." But once you get past the cluttered attic feeling, you realize things are really laid out in an orderly manner and well labeled. They just have a lot of stuff! Each room leads to another that is as interesting, if not more, than the one you just left. For us, seeing the Fresnell lens from the St George lighthouse was the highlight of the tour. The volunteers are very well versed and could answer all the questions we asked (sorry, we really asked a lot).

“Surprisingly well done local museum.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

Well put together and filled with interesting artifacts and information. Plan on spending more time than you think. Three dollars is a steal for this great place.
