“Surprisingly well done local museum.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2012

Well put together and filled with interesting artifacts and information. Plan on spending more time than you think. Three dollars is a steal for this great place.

“Great museum in a small city”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2012

I had house guests go up to see this once and raved about it. I finally went and was amazed at how huge and comprehensive this museum was. Great volunteers, but call ahead to get their hours.

“Surprising find -”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2012

Wonderful display of baskets from local Native American tribes - many are 100+ years old. Also displays of pioneer, fishing and military memorabilia, collections of pipes, dolls, typewriters. Like rummaging through grandma's attic.
