My husband,daughter,granddaughter and myself went to the presentation this spring of the KOP. The presentation was very informative and very well presented. After the presentation we toured the museum. There was something of interest for each of our age groups. In addition all of the volunteers were very helpful and very nice. I have recommended to our family and friends.

Early twentieth century auto display very impressive. Also enjoyed room displays of early american living areas. Much to see. Plan on at least two to three hours.

I visited here a few years ago. It was a nice place. I went here with a few friends. I might go it to again, next time I am in town.

Stopped in while we were in town early for an appointment and had two hours to kill. Wow! Three floors of amazing artifacts. We needed way more time than two hours. My son especially enjoyed the hundreds of guns and the cars in the basement and on the second floor. Will go again soon and plan on spending the day.

Great for families, couples, friends, or even solo. This museum has A LOT for him, a BUNCH for her, and really has something for everyone. One of the largest and most interesting gun collections I've ever heard of, cars, industry, artifacts, toys, models, bikes, tools, and way way way more. A little bit of everything. Many photos and unique items... More

My brother took us to this museum when we visited, and he stated the items there constantly change. I learned a lot about the history of this small town and how it's people and innovations have affected the world in a big way.

This museum features such a great variety of historical treasures. It has something for everyone. Be sure to go through all 3 levels and watch the short film while downstairs. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable. We really enjoyed our visit!

We love going to the museum, and when they have the car show outside. Hubby thinks the gun collection is amazing. I like to see everything, but usually spend more time looking at the old cars !!!
