This little museum is a loving memory to the famous doctor and native son. It is worth walking through as well as touring the grounds near by. Many sayings attributed to Dr. Schweitzer are posted on signs and placards around the village.

Much to learn from this well-kept little museum about a local hero! Forty-five minutes very well-spent at the top end of the village.
