So glad we went to this museum. Impressive collection shows the uses of hammers in industry and other work and the ingenuity of how this tool has been modified to accomplish all sorts of tasks. What a collection!

Who’d have thought looking at hammers would be so informative! A small place, absolutely rammed with numerous different types of hammers. Worthy visit just to say you went, only $5.

My wife and I spent 45 minutes to an hour there. It was very interesting. If you're in to hammers you could spend a lot longer there.
