The staff is very helpful! They have the history of the telephone, a miniature replica of a street in Abilene, a historic carousel, history of Abilene, etc. Loved learning about Abilene!

Nice place to stop and learn some history of Abilene. The museum had a great selection of phones and the ground had old building to explore.Did not ride the carousel but was fun to see.

Came here a few days ago. Very interesting, many artifacts. Would recommend going outside to go into the buildings in the back.

We loved seeing the Heritage Center. The telephone history display was great and we enjoyed seeing all of the buildings outside. The best part for me was the 1901 carousel. It is very unique and can be ridden for a very little fee.

For seniors, it was $5 plus $2 more if you wanted to ride the carousel. One to two hours is plenty
