The recent addition of the children's play area upstairs is fantastic! Our boys love going there to play in the barn, house, tree, canal boat, and stage! It's such a neat museum in our little town. There are many interesting exhibits for adults and kids alike. It's a great place to spend a few hours every weekend!

This museum is very impressive for our small town. well kept, interesting,.has two floors of "stuff" and has both kid items and older adults items to see. Much better than a lot of museums of bigger cities.

Great museum for this area and for any small town. Covers the history of the whole area, not just Wabash, and the associated world events. Good variety of exhibits, and a short film. Has a small gift shop, and is good for kids.

This a very nice museum for such a small town. It does a nice job of displaying Wabash history. So much to see and very well organized. The workers are knowledgeable and it is a very clean facility. Two floors of interesting stuff. Kids really loved it.

We have third grade twins. The girls had so much fun here. It's not large, but there's a lot more to do than you initially think. It was interesting and informative. The staff was so nice.
