Local history

A hidden gem. Tons of local history about the railroad and airport. Good collection of items and the volunteer staff really knew their stuff. Donate at the door.

This is little museum is such a great hidden treasure that we happened upon while visiting "the corner". It is small but has so many interesting displays about Winslow and the region. The volunteer there was so knowledgeable and sweet.

Would recommend a visit to this Free museum if you'd like to learn more about the history and culture of Winslow. Interesting displays about the railroad, the Harvey Hotels, Standing on the Corner Park, and Winslow in general.

We stopped in because a relative was working there for the day. She was a wonderful tour guide but even when she had questions from other visitors, we stayed busy. The exhibits are relative to the area. AND, this area has a lot of history surrounding it. I love anything to do with trains so I was certainly not disappointed... More

Great museum! Full of exhibits of local history. Bring your questions here to learn the fascinating history of the area. We stayed at La Pasada, a short walk away. It was a Fred Harvey hotel. The museum explains more of the history, has china, uniforms,artifacts. Staff friendly, helpful. Nice reasonable priced gift shop. Highly recommend!

Another must stop and a real "find". Just a little tiny museum, free but leave a donation, with a ton of "stuff" stuffed inside. Really presents a great history of the town and area with a lot of memorabilia and photos.

Free to enter but worth a small admission fee. All volunteer staff who are proud of the Winslow heritage. Spend an hour or less and learn the impact Winslow had on building the western route. Had a great time and learned a bunch. Thanks to the terrific staff!

My husband and I arrived maybe 15 minutes before they were to close. We told the guy that we would hurry and look. He said that they don't lock the doors right at 3:00 and proceeded to walk around with us and tell us all kinds of stories and historical facts about the area and many of the items in... More

Very close to the "Standing on the Corner" display this little museum is a must see. The volunteer was friendly and informative. Lots to see including information on the Harvey Houses and some mammoth bones. All they ask for is a donation so be sure to give.

I very rarely give an excellent rating to anything, but much thought was put into this little museum. Very interesting and informative. The two nice ladies there were so friendly and informative. It is free, but worth giving a donation to.
