As a History Major, I enjoyed the museum thoroughly. Items go back to the early settlements in the immediate area. Truly a must see.

It is difficult to park and the access isn't easy for wheelchairs or walkers. Without being insulting, I would simply say that there isn't enough at this museum to motivate many visitors to it.

Elizabethtown is a small town, so I didn't think the history museum would be very big. But it has a lot of exhibits and was actually a lot more interesting than I thought it was going to be.

The place is full of history. Went with a friend and our kids, 2 each. Even the kids loved it. You could easily spend hours looking at everything.

Everyone was so helpful in finding genealogy treasures. Amazing journey through time with the museum. A must see. And the Lincoln room was so nice.

We traveled to Hardin County to learn about our family history and trace our ancestors. This museum was a total gold mine of the local history. It is very well done and worth a visit if you want to learn about the area. Highly recommend.

If you enjoy local history, this free museum is an excellent way to get to know the community. Local volunteers will be glad to share.

This is a lovely little gem in Elizabethtown! I believe that it is often overlooked! It is a small museum and has some odd hours, but it is free (donations only) and has a variety of interesting items in it! While it is not exactly...More
