This interesting building has a varied history tied into the town. The displays are varied and interesting. The greeter was friendly and informative but it is a self-guided tour. Getting to it is easy by walking from anywhere in town.

There is a $5 cover charge for adults and $3 for students. The building is special as it was an old hospital. The display of old hospital amenities was interesting. I wasn't impressed with the rest of the artifacts.

Not large but extremely informative! The displays were well planned out. Lots of artifacts local to the area, as well as photographs of past times. Behind the building is mining equipment which was pretty interesting. Most reasonable admission prices.

Chock full of history and beautiful exhibits. Well worth the walk up the hill and the $5 entry fee. The receptionist was very helpful.

As it's a historical museum housed in a historic building I'd doubt it, but perhaps if it was a service dog?? Give them a call.
