This museum offers a great look at the history of life on the peninsula. Amazing that such a gem does not have an admission fee--only donations. Definitely worth the stop.

There is something for all. My kids love the fire truck and phone booth. The museum is very well kept and is run by volunteers which is wonderful.

The museum had lots of really neat antiques but most impressive was the Mural/Diorama at the entrance which displays of seasons and the wildlife. The taxidermy was fantastic! The artifacts in the museum brought back lots of good memories visiting my grandparents. The museum is free but donations are welcome.

A must stop in my opinion. Lots of displays of local life from years ago. The person at the desk had lots of local information about the wildlife displays. Lots to see so you may want to split it up over two days. Be sure to watch some of the movies in the area to the left of the reception... More

This small but informative museum was neat. Gives you a brief history of the area, from 1800's to current times. Good for all ages

Great place to visit. Nice place for the kids too! Its nice that you can sit on one of the old fire trucks and take pictures. Fun for all ages and very informative place for the Door County area. Desk staff could be a bit more friendly and informative..
