Being a history nerd, I loved this museum! Actually went twice in one week! Tickets are reasonably priced and give you access to the Museum, Mound, Old School House, Post Office, and small civil war cabin. They have some really amazing artifacts, all locally found.

Well worth the visit. Hundreds of Native American artifacts from the area are house here. There is also an old post office, civil war memorabilia and an old school house. All very interesting with the highlight being the Indian artifacts and descriptions.

Yes! I believe it's $5.80 for adults, kids are free I think. They have a website, if you search them on google it should pop up :)
