This museum has interesting information about Paducah, and is worth the stop. Some of the photos and stories about the city, including those by the staff working there, makes it a fun experience. The market house building itself is awesome to experience.

Well curated, well displayed and maintained. I had almost forgotten Alvin Barclay! Go figure! I like that they honored local heroes. The old drug store collection was great!

The museum has a variety of local, state, and national historical items. The woman work in was very polite and shared animal crackers with our two girls. However is was too text heavy for our young children.
