If you come through Troy, don't miss this. The guided tour is conducted by locals who are very informed on the history of Pike County. You will see many old relics of the past. The guides are very informed on the local history.

Great place to visit to learn about Alabama and life in the South. It is stepping back in time. We enjoy the special programs like 'Pioneer Days' or 'An old-fashion Christmas'. Education and fun meet there.

This museum and collection of out-buildings house some of the most incredible people performing activities that are all but lost in today's society. Artifacts of ages long since gone and some items are in pristine condition. You should visit this spot located in Troy Alabama on the North side on Highway 231.

We've been by this great little place several times before but were always crunched for time so we couldn't stop. This time we took a break from the road and went inside. They have lots of wonderful things from times past to look at. The historical outbuildings are great too. Inside they are appointed with items and furniture of the time period. We spent an hour here and I want to go back again when I have more time to fully explore. A great place for school age children too. Prices are very reasonable. $6. adult, $5. seniors, children just a couple of dollars I think.

The concept of a Pioneer Museum is a neat idea, but this museum lacks the scale, space, and resources to really impress. The old train is something little kids will like and some of the old buildings take you right back to 19th century Alabama. But, overall it needs a lot more to be something people will spend more than 45 minutes walking through once and never again.
