I'm not even from Lima/Allen County or ever lived there, but this was VERY interesting! Very well done. One could easily spend 3 hours there. A lot larger than I thought plus VERY well done!

This is a modern museum. If that sounds funny I'm not surprised! The inside is beautiful and extremely informative. Kids love it. See the covered wagon and all that went with it. Many great displays including a log cabin.

This is an outstanding local museum with well done displays from area history. The children's area is excellent and a hit with my grandchildren and the Christmas tree festival is impressive every December, especially the McDonnell house with its Victorian decor.

The museum in Lima is a nice contribution to the community. It’s a great way to spend a few hours. It’s nice to glance back in time and reflect on the history of this area.
