This place has so many low key treasures. I say low key because they don't all stand out as solo features but are all very interesting as well as smartly presented. The staff are very helpful and informative. I had a very nice time and will go back again.

As far as small museums go the Columns has many interesting displays. The Hiawatha Stage coach is a favorite, the costumes and Indian artifacts a terrific experience.

We had a nice visit. The guide was very informative and seeing the flag with Lincoln's blood was very emotional.

A neat, compact and interesting Museum. Lots of info on the history of Pike County. The Lincoln Flag on which he lay after being shot is a unique artifact of American History.

This museum has a lot of great pieces from history. I can think of one item in particular is the American flag that President Lincoln was wrapped in after he was shot at the theater that fatal night.

Went to see the blood soaked Lincoln flag - which was placed under the President's head after being shot. I learned a lot - beautiful building. Also has an American flag with 31 stars on display

I love it here, a wealth of information about a very historic town! Plus the Lincoln flag in a neo Greco Roman house called the Columns. Friendly staff and an interesting book store. Genealogy research done here too.

We went primarily to see the flag, the museum is small but filled with interesting items. Worth a quick stop.
