For a small town, this is a fairly good museum. It makes you appreciate how many historical events have taken place here, over hundreds of years. The displays are interesting. It's a bit expensive for it's size, but interesting.

This is a well done little place. The overview of the history and culture of the town are represented well. Some great artifacts. Perfect sized, balance between informative enough and not overwhelming.

Nicely laid out museum, with many local historical artifacts but especially the extensive collection of Henry David Thoreau's writhings. Worth the time and minimal cost to visit, with a helpful staff.
