The staff were very helpful and had wonderful stories to tell about their exhibits. I loved the variety of things they had to observe, and it was very enjoyable for my 2 year old nephew. I highly recommend visiting if you haven't already.

It seemed to be closed down but the outdoor exhibit was still available and the jet plane and APC were very interesting as well as all the farm implements.

We did not expect much from a museum with free admission in this somewhat isolated town, and were very pleasantly surprised. The displays consist of a lot of donated collections, such as military memorabilia, toy tractors, tools, and huge farm tractors and implements. In addition,...More
