Little Gem in Benson....The museum is located in a historic 1920's building that used to house the W.D. Martinez General Merchandise Store. The permanent displays provide an opportunity to step into an old time general store and make a trip to an optometrist's office. Other displays highlight home life, health and work. The Benson area is known for its connection to the railroads and to mining. The museum also houses the refurbished early 1914 Benson School bus. Behind the museum is the Art & Quilting Gallery, a must for all those interested in the hand-made pieces from local artisans. Museum Hours October - April Tuesday-Friday 10-4, Saturday - 10-2. May - September Tuesday - Saturday 10-2. Closed all of August.
