Very full of a curious collection of items. IT takes a while to walk through. Kind of musty because of all the old times. Fun to explore the collection.

Small and fun. It comprises one lady's lifetime accumulation of all manner of what was once ordinary stuff. A unique museum of Americana.

This is a collection of items that include science, history, randomly bizarre and sometimes funny stuff. I enjoyed poking around. Some of the specimens are not suited for the squeamish, but I think teenagers would find it entertaining. Pretty cool place if you like history...More

A dusty jumble that is not your typical museum and clearly not well supported by the town, but the local man in charge gave us an excellent personal explanation and pointed out various antiques from clothing to typewriters to cameras and LOTS of other "stuff"!...More
