We researched this museum on TA and found it got good reviews, so we came to visit. It was indeed very good with the history of the area, but what intrigued me the most personally was the story of local boy, Ernest Brace, who was the longest held civilian POW (8 years) and was in a cell near John McCain. I looked him up online and read more of his story. The old cars in the museum were pretty cool also. There were some displays with information on the WW2 balloon bombs, as well as displays of various local animals found in the area. We thought it was a very good museum to visit!

The manager took the time to show us around on his own accord, explained things and even opened up the vault and took us in! It was really nice to see his enthusiasm! For this I give this place a 4 instead of a three.

We enjoyed our time there. It was a limited experience due to Covid but still worthwhile. The Japanese balloon exhibit was our favorite.

Hidden gem. We stumbled in looking for a break from the heat. Including the geological, archeological and anthropological history of the area, this museum presents local history in an interesting and engaging way. Don’t miss the fractured quilt or the enormous oil paining of the crucifixion hidden away in a side hallway! Definite steal for $5.

The museum reflects the community. It is not huge but it does a nice job of giving local history about people places and things from paleontology to WWII to the western movement of settlers.
