Not a large Museum, but a fascinating insight into local history. A very welcome hostess. Our visit was made more interesting by the Christmas Tree exhibition. This year 56 trees each decorated uniquely by a different organisation, school,individual family etc. Well done !

They have exhibits for the entire family. Some of the exhibits are changed frequently. There's always something new to see. We go every few months.

Made an appointment to see the Potton House while in town. Wonderful historic home that has been refurbished. Best surprise was the 2nd floor living space renovated for the children. It was outstanding! Such a nice diversion in Big Spring!

I've visited there about four times. It has wonderful items in it and the novelty shop is the greatest and the hostess was very friendly and kind.

There is a small fee but I think they will allow you to go in even if you don't have any money for it. Very interesting exhibits and great staff.
