I especially enjoyed the old schoolhouses and the displays therein. My favorite item in the entire museum was the "Rules for Teachers" list. Teachers of that era were not allowed to cavort with men or hang out in ice cream parlors.

The other reviewers are correct--large collections of stuff. It seems that any and everything are in this mamouth museum. No credit or debit cards taken. No senior discount. I would tell you to save your money.
