Thank you for the nice review, Jennifer. The museum tries to have a variety of experiences for visitors to enjoy from being outside during the recent Vintage Tractor and Ag Show and the upcoming youth summer camp to changing inside exhibits in the Duncan Gallery such as the newly completed exhibit featuring native son Harry Duncan developed, researched and prepared by our spring intern, Josie Durfee. Our award winning "A Rural Way of Life" permanent exhibit features families and events in Andrew County but tells a story similar of rural America as changes came.

This is just an amazing museum in small town rural Savannah, MO. Being a citizen of the county probably makes it more interesting knowing a lot of the people and families in the exhibits, but it is also woven into the history of our country and the westward expansion. The

Thank you Monica for the nice review of the Andrew County Museum and Historical Society. "Hidden gem" is an apt description of our facility because even in Andrew County, many do not realize the quality exhibits and programs offered here. Our museum features the stories of everyday citizens doing everyday activities and how those have changed in the last 175+ years. Famous names or events may not be highlights that draw visitors from across the country but for people interested in how life in rural America has evolved since the middle nineteenth century our museum is a treasure worth discovering. We hope you will soon return to visit our permanent exhibit, our changing exhibits or one of our interesting programs.

We visited the museum before and after the eclipse. It was much more than we expected with a nice variety of exhibits depicting Andrew county and America's heritage. The museum is a new-one level facility, clean and well organized. We noted that the exhibits were professionally

We were pleased you could visit our Museum Solar Eclipse Viewing Party and, like others, we were disappointed that the clouds and rain interfered with our "watch" of the eclipse. The opportunity to visit our museum was something that we hope made your trip into Missouri worthwhile. The reaction that the museum is "much more than expected" is one we hear from many visitors. The museum permanent exhibit attempts to tell a story of change in rural America over time and much that is shown is not peculiar to just Northwest Missouri. Thank you for the very nice review and we look forward to your return visit.

Cute museum. More than I thought there would be. We came here for eclipse viewing and got here early enough to let the kids wander around the museum for about an hour.

Thank you for choosing our eclipse event to attend! We appreciate that your family took the time to take in our Rural Way of Life exhibit and hope you had time to see the toy tractor, fast pitch softball, doll, Harry Duncan, and other exhibits back in the Duncan Gallery. We are proud of the quality of our museum and so glad to have the opportunity to host you and guests from around the United States for the event.
