Owner description: We tell great stories. We can explain how Creston got its wacky time zone. We can tell you about the steamship that became a tractor (sort of), the first airplane to land in Creston, and the teacher who refused to be fired. Speaking of "great" stories, there's "The Great Railway Race" and the "Great Creston Bank Robbery." And have you heard the one about the imaginary student in Grade Thirteen? Really, we're not making this up. Why would we? Truth is so much better than fiction. We can even help you tell the greatest story of all: your own. So come on in. After all, there's no time like the present to discover the past.

My sons & myself visited the museum this week. We were pleasantly surprised by the interesting buildings and stone work. I loved the combination of indoor and outdoor displays. The old school house is in original condition. And there are picnic tables to enjoy a family luncheon. Summer students guide you around & provide interesting anecdotes about the area.

We really enjoyed visiting this museum with our toddler. Much bigger than we expected! We were toured around by a young man who worked there- he was very friendly, told us some interesting things, and went along with our "toddler pace" patiently! We also wandered around outside on our own and enjoyed looking at all the old farm equipment. We also really liked the mock old town creston set up with the moving train. A nice way to spend an afternoon if you enjoy learning about local history- some great artifacts and a nice set up :)

A great place to visit and find out all about the Creston valley from day one to today. It also has really cool buildings fron areas around the valley as well as a great train room of life in Creston. A travel back in time.
