The museum is well organized and fun to see. They have a one-room schoolhouse display, a sports hall and several other areas of interest. The guides are excellent! The best part is the large exhibit of the changing way the deceased were prepared and viewed...More

Interesting items about Washington and Daviess County plus many exhibits. Helps to sponser other county events and helps with county wide events for the public. Vince Sellers is a knowledgeable person who adds much information to the visit.

Awesome place to visit; and @ only $2 a person for a guided tour, it's also a super deal. Perfect place for a family activity. They are open 12 to 5 Tuesday through Saturday.
