From Glassware to Whittling, B&O Railroad to the C&O Canal, Kelly Tires to The National Road it is all here. They have a very nice collection of local brewery and distillery items. I also enjoyed the archeology and wildlife exhibits.

Small, but very nice and interesting museum. There is so much history in Cumberland I was surprised I could not find a larger museum.

Docent advised, "You can see the exhibits in any order you like!" He was correct. Loved the exhibit on breweries and distilleries of the region, the most. Great pieces on the tire industry and on a local artist of note.

The museum has a variety of well designed exhibits that highlight different facets of Allegany County history. Many of the exhibits focus on industries that were once prevalent which fits well with the industrial heritage of the area. It is definitely worth spending an hour...More

Housed in a gorgeous 1930’s building that was once the Court House and old Post Office, the Allegany Museum is quite impressive. This for me was the best attraction in Cumberland. Professionally done, well-researched and properly presented to the public, it spans an entire floor...More

Interesting history of the area & cool artifacts. The dedication to Kelly is a little overboard but I do hear they're expanding the lower level!

The museum is in the old federal building in downtown Cumberland. The architecture of the building itself is impressive, with one portion of the exhibit in the wood paneled old judge's quarters. The exhibits tell the story of the area, industry, culture and history. The...More

This museum in the old post office and later District Court building has a great collection of historic items. It has different rooms with different themes. It is well worth a look and you might just learn something while you are there!
