Being as we're a small town there's not a whole lot to see but everything we have is well placed & organized. My kids & I really enjoy visiting from time to time to see what's changed & what's new. It's always a pleasant trip.

The place is a little disjointed and light on civil war but a great effort as a town museum. Its free so the price us right. Parking lot in front. A lot of early medical stuff.

We especially enjoyed the tribute to medical care in the county. Even though there was a major transition from one display to another, the volunteers helped us navigate and still made us welcome! Nice room about Gov. Tuck! There is a nice genealogy room also....More

I love the museum. You can visit different rooms, from classical ones to modern ones. Impressionists' room is amazing! I highly recommend it. Picasso's paintings too and the modern room of the top floor. You can understand the modern works of arts, because they explain...More

Our family was referred to this museum because we were in town doing family history research. The genealogy room was in the process of being expanded because of lots of resources. Great experience, helpful people in the resource room. But the museum itself was a...More
