But it is very interesting. My son was the most enthralled with the logbook for the Indigent Hospital. It does need a big influx of cash to get it from a random hodgepodge to something organized and tied together. However, still worth the time to stop by and look at the exhibits. There is enough tom see and learn from the knowledgeable staff to make it a worthwhile stop anyway. Would mlove to come back in a few years and hopefuly see some changes toward a cohesive exhibit. I loved the pictures of then and now.

I agree with the other reviews and they need a lot of work on the exhibits, but if you look hard enough, there are lots of cool things, including the history of the building which you will not get from the exhibits but from the staff.

They are a friendly bunch here and it is only $5. But they are working on all the displays upstairs and remodeling them so you don't see as much as you would expect. I am sure it will be different once they are done but I would hold off visiting until they are done.

Little to see or do. Not much parking. Just nothing to recommend it. Now even sure how this place could stay open.

But exhibits very tired in the hospital building. Little or no interpretation. Outside the train and engine locked, and only one cottage open. They need a big injection of cash, if there are any benefactors out there.
