Pros: Our 8-year-old son was beside himself with excitement! Our 12-year-old girl really enjoyed it as well. We had a wonderful time exploring the indoor and outdoor exhibits. The museum volunteers went above and beyond to answer all of our many questions. The children learned a lot!

Cons: The museum had recently experienced a fire that destroyed one of the exhibits and the lawn mower was not working. We had to trek through high grass at times. However, it was only a minor inconvenience. Also, several outdoor bathrooms were out of order.

Overall: For such a minimum fee and such nice and helpful volunteers, the museum is well worth it. If you love nostalgia, the museum is a must-see.

What a wonderfully well done Pioneer Museum. Great for children and adults alike. Wonderful outbuildings and trails. Interesting indoor displays with local southern relics full of history. We especially enjoyed the antique farm equipment.
Some special events held throughout the year that are always fun!

We have been a couple of times and enjoy it every time. They have some great items and seem to continue improving. I think it's a great place to take younger kids, it's a small museum and doesn't take a long time to tour

This is a collection of buildings from the late 1880's through the 1930's that have been moved to this location on the side of the highway. Volunteers man some of the buildings some of the time doing quilting and blacksmithing. It's not really a museum, just stuff people thought would be good to save. Apparently there is a farmer's market on Saturdays, but I've never been able to catch it.

If you come through Troy, don't miss this. The guided tour is conducted by locals who are very informed on the history of Pike County. You will see many old relics of the past. The guides are very informed on the local history.
