We couldn't seem to locate the museum for WNMU so chose to look through this small gem. Lots of good interesting exhibits and terrific gift shop - worth a stop

We went to the museum 2 times, on Sunday and Tuesday. They are closed on Mondays. I was refered to several books to find family roots. The local library resource center is a must to continue my searches.

Very nice and we're so glad we stopped. Open on Sunday's , not Monday's. Good history of area and very friendly staff. I loved the gift store and their books and jewelry . They have walking tours so do that if you have time.
