Several back roads with minimal signage made locating the museum a little tedious for us seniors, but the end justified the means. People at the museum very nice and answered all our questions in a friendly fashion. For a "Waltons" fan, there is a great deal of history of the family, both real and tv families. The exhibit rooms are well done. The " Ikes" general store near the museum is just a convenience store now as the original is long gone. Extra fee to the home of the author was unexpected. Nothing else in the area that we found.
