Informative museum, which has an impressive collection of antique cars and tools. We did not spend too much time here, and it is open limited hours, but if was interesting and enjoyable.

A very good museum. I really liked their collection of very old cars and trucks. the volunteers were not busy so they gave me long personal descriptions of the cars. They wer very knowledgeable and interesting. Lots of old farm equipment and other historical objects.

Loved this little museum. On the site of Geowoodstock XXIII this cute and interesting little museum exhibited a nice snapshot of rural 20th century living. Had a beautiful old pickup truck that i'd love to have been able to take for a spin!
