A good historical museum, nothing fancy but very informative. Fascinating story of the evolution of cranberry growing. The host was very helpful in the gift shop picking out wine and talking about the town. Well worth the small ($5) admission fee.

Stopped at the gift shop/museum. Museum was in the basement (I did see an elevator). Five minute video provided a quick overview. Lots of artifacts. Purchased chocolate covered cranberries in the gift shop and they were so delicious. Great start to the cranberry bog tour.
