Free, donations accepted. Housed in a beautiful old Carnegie Library, this was a very interesting and unexpected find.

The building is just beautiful. The guide was very knowledgeable and entertaining. The artifacts are fun to look at and take a still through history. The theater area is beautiful and in great shape. Will be an amazing place for weddings or other functions.

Our school went on a field rea here. It was such an interesting collection. I really like the early Native America exhibit. The building is a treasure in its own right.
