We stopped here to get ice cream and tour the building. It was a nice break in our day of touring Two Rivers. The volunteers can tell you many stories about the building.

It's all volunteer run and done with a broad smile. It's the birthplace of the ice cream sundae and they do a great job at it. Go upstairs while you're there, explore the ball room and the rooms behind. The museum has a bit of a garage sale feel, but that only increases the exploration factor.

The museum is really fun and much larger than you would expect, so take some time to view all the interesting objects and history here. The elderly folks that work here are VERY nice, and can...

Home of the ice cream sundae! This jam packed museum is a work in progress but very fun to explore! Besides the ice cream parlor there are many rooms to explore. Some rooms are themed - like toy room. Upstairs is the ball room - painted ceilings and little out rooms on the side. The replication of the Barber shop/doctor's... More
