Much bigger (and broader in scope) than we expected. Friendly and knowledgeable staff goes out of their way to help you enjoy your visit. Beautifully curated, and the Annie Oakley exhibits are real eye-openers. Many authentic military and ‘home front’ exhibits that walk you through...More

Many historical exhibits, including the signing of the 1795 Treaty of Greene Ville that opened the Northwest Territory for settlement. Also, local renowned sharpshooter Annie Oakley and broadcaster Lowell Thomas. Well worth the visit.
