When you think of your little small town museum that has very little to see and offer, you will be surprised when you visit this one. There is much to see here.

There was a local artist exhibit open on a Saturday. We especially enjoyed the enamel artist and the silversmith. The ladies in the pottery area were so nice. It was a nice visit.

Charming "micro-museum" focused on the Quaker town of Sandy Spring. The exhibitions are small, with adjacent art galleries and historical archives. You can walk through several areas with re-creations of historic school room, kitchen, General Store, etc. The museum feels like a community center for arts and culture, featuring event space, lectures, artists in residence. The staff was friendly, and we enjoyed the little gift shop. Recommend about one hour. Admission was $5 per adult, with small discounts for seniors and children. We enjoyed our visit.

This is a unique museum that combines local history with art. Displays are quite interesting and there ar many things to learn. Sandy Spring is a nice little area to explore and you need to learn about its interesting history. The Friends as well as the Underground Railwy are some of teh key things to learn about. Museum is worth a visit.
