Interesting stop to learn about the town

Friendly staff and interesting collection. Its collection tends to be fairly recent pieces. We had to drive around to find a parking spot.

Stopped in Cumberland for the night and wanted something to do. This museum was near our hotel so we stopped in. It wasn’t very big but it sure was interesting. It didn’t take long to go through it but was worth stopping at. The two ladies at the entrance were very lovely and charming. We talked with them for a while and left there with a smile.

The local community appears to love this museum as it treats its past with both honour and respect. A positive educational experience that is well researched to you to learn from.

While it maybe small compared to other museums the volunteers are huge on knowledge. We had a lovely time chatting with them and viewing all the different artifacts from the past.

Nice local history museum
Jun 2019 • Solo
The Allegany Museum is located on the second floor of a handsome building (Old District court and old post office). It is the best place to learn about people (native and current locals), commercials, industrials, and ways of life. There are photos, researches, and artifacts for visitors to learn. Also, it is small and not too overwhelm with information. Once can get a lot from a short visit. I like it and may go back to visit more for further knowledge.

What a diverse history!

Our docent was so knowledgeable and entertaining. You could tell that he takes great pride in his community. We learned about the history of Allegany County over generations and the economic victories and heartbreaks it has faced.

Interesting Local Flavor

This is a gem. Small museum with exhibits from the local area. It's kind of quirky but well worth a visit. In a beautiful building with easy access. Free but donations are encouraged. Really enjoyed it.

You never know what you’re going to see when your there. I’ve been taking my grandson there since he was a toddler and he remembers something different each time!

A Gem of a Museum
Oct 2018 • Couples
We stopped in this free museum to kill some time, but really enjoyed our visit. The docent showed us the cases of native american items - he was involved in some of the archaeological digs and told us about the pieces. There are displays on the C&O Canal, glassware, Kelly Tires, wooden folk art and lots of historic items from Cumberland's history (once the second largest city in Maryland). A pleasant surprise was several Christmas display windows from a NYC store, they were in great shape. I highly encourage you to stop in for a visit, its great!

Also, this is the cleanest local museum I've ever been in, no dust, shining display cases and well lit, it was a pleasure strolling through the rooms.
