The place is full of history. Went with a friend and our kids, 2 each. Even the kids loved it. You could easily spend hours looking at everything.

We traveled to Hardin County to learn about our family history and trace our ancestors. This museum was a total gold mine of the local history. It is very well done and worth a visit if you want to learn about the area. Highly recommend.
