The Springfield museum is housed in one of the oldest buildings in town. The exhibits change often downstairs and upstairs rarely changes. There is a tiny gift shop with carefully curated items. Worth a short visit and the admission is by donation.

The museum captures the history of the city. When we were there, the main exhibit covered the history of the Springfield police force. The permanent collection contains artifacts from the past. There is no admission fee. We placed cash in the donation box.

The best thing I can say about the museum is there is no admission charge. It is free but a small donation would be appropriate. It is very limited but still interesting enough to spend 30 minutes ir less.

This free spot is a surprising find in Springfield's downtown. It was interesting to us that our family who lives here was unaware of the museum. It's small but very well done. There are little search and find activities for the kids, lots of old photos and info from the area and a small gift shop. We enjoyed the second... More
