  • Great museum! The exhibits are varied and well interpreted. This museum prides itself on being an active part of the community and that can be seen in the varied activities they put on! We took our grandson to the model train exhibition last weekend and he was thrilled!
  • a local hidden gem, that although housed in a smaller building, it has lots of very interesting historical artifacts from the region. We went to see the model train display, but the museum admission was included. Well worth the visit!
