“Interesting history of bridge building and the area.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2012

Small museum containing bridge building memorabilia, photos, brochures, postcards, bridge building equipment, bridge union labor, videos and newspapers. No charge for the admission and is well worth the visit.

“Take a Few Minutes for an Interesting Museum”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2012

Great 20 or so minute movie about building the bridge. A small museum of artifacts of the bridge building including workman's equipment, etc. and a model. Free will offering. Located on the main street on the second floor of Mama Mia's Pizza which according to other reviewers isn't the best in town.
Take a few minutes and visit - you will be glad you did.

“Great for all”

Worth the time to discover this history. Leaned many things that I was unaware of and you don't normally think about when crossing this bridge.

“Simple but fun”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2012

This small, free museum is a bit corny, but still fun. It burned to the ground a few years ago, but has been rebuilt. It is located above Mama Mia's Pizza and open the same hours at the restaurant so in the the summer you can visit it late at night.

“Small Little Museum”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2012

Small little museum above a pizza place - ok collection of information on the bridge. Also video playing that was kinda interesting. Doesn't take a lot of time to go through, but free so no biggie.
