There is a lot to see here, with many varieties of artifacts from the area, from early settlers to WW2. There are three rooms inside the main building plus several outbuildings with larger exhibits. There’s a little bit of everything.

We went with a 3 and 8 year old. The volunteers/ staff were so lovely, and the museum is very hands-on, inside and outside. A great place! Plan 2 hours or so, bring your own snacks.More

This being our first visit to WW, we wanted to soak in the history. The museum was well organized and really explained the agricultural history of the area. We would recommend to all.
