  • I've got to tour here for free for school purposes and I always enjoyed my time here. I love how they've made everything interactive and how they display everything. Whoever designed and planned the museum did a very good job and deserves to be applauded for it. There's lots of very interesting information and it goes fairly in depth for those who are very interested in what it was like here. Heavily recommended for anyone who is familiar with Andrew County to tour this place at least once.
  • Interning at the Andrew County Museum completely opened my eyes to the wonderful people and exhibits it has to offer. I was, like many, pleasantly surprised upon learning how professional and detailed a small county museum could be. It's really quite a hidden gem!
