This is a great little place to visit. It's free, but they accept donations. The guide was very informative. If you don't want to read the posters, you can just ask the guide. You can walk through the space in less than an hour.

Great little find with yet another passionate, informational guide to chat with about all the interesting trinkets inside. I wish they had more street signs and advertising, I would have come years ago.

It was a Victorian home with pretty much nothing in it. It has 2 rooms to view. The ad says 40,000 artifacts, which is not true. It was by donation, so I was not out much money, but still, not worth your time.

If you haven't made time for this off the beaten path museum, you simply must. You will enjoy it greatly!

The museum included lots of wonderful displays in a very small home. Lots of great information and history provided. The volunteer was very knowledgeable.
