Great little place with lots of interesting medical devices and history. It is small, so and hour would be plenty for most people. Especially interesting for people in the medical field.

This museum was formerly the hospital for the area. There are wonderful displays of historical medical equipment. Plan to spend an hour or two here to take it all in. Stairs to the upper level. Restrooms on site.

We enjoyed seeing the old medical equipment and old early 20th century style hospital. It brought back memories of the 50's drs office. It is quite extensive and takes about 30-60 minutes to go through.

Not a typical museum but is the original hospital building with the rooms much as they were in the early 1900's. Just a great surprise, much more than I was expecting.
