This is a small but nice museum. Lot's of historical items and occasionally they have special exhibits. My 8 year old grandson loved the dinosaur bones a few years ago!

Small, yet informative local museum. Learned a bit of the history of Sherman..nothing that WOWED me. Exhibits are nicely presented, staff is friendly. I thought $5 entrance fee was a excessive provided the exhibits..postcards were a buck each! The facility is EXTREMELY clean.
