A World War 1 exhibit featured the sounds and rumblings experienced in a bunker. Also one on segregation in the area was well done and a good reminder of unsettling aspects of the past.

A piece of local history for all.. Local curators have created a small, but excellent museum within the confines of historic Salisbury. A must see

One is always treated to a special event whenever they enter the door to this Museum. You are led through a wonderful grouping of what has existed in this wonderful community throughout the past 100 plus years. Great for all ages.
