Small museum with lots of pre-1940s items. Guide was friendly and knowledgeable. The attached telephone museum was very interesting. If you go, don't miss the mural - it changes views as you walk past it!

This museum has a little bit of everything. It has a children's telephone museum that is very interactive. It had a neat collection of nutcrackers and a Christmas room.

Two of the three visitors in our party were in their early 60's. To them the merchandise in the store, and many of the telephone items, were from before their time. The senior member of our group, age 83, found the items to have been...More

The Tupper Museum is a fabulous time capsule of mid-century Americana. When we went, I didn't realize how fascinated I would be with looking at general store merchandise! But seeing the old stockings, medications, and men's longjohns gave me a real glimpse of life before...More
