You can spend anywhere between 10 minutes and two hours here. And lots of local history. If you have some time it’s worth the stop.

While walking around Breckenridge, I came across this small museum, or "Discovery Center."

I got to watch a video in one room that told the story of Mr. Carter...very cool!

This little cabin actually holds a decent amount of stuff: plenty of interesting artifacts, displays, and an assortment of stuffed animals.

The fact that it's free (donations accepted) earned this place its 5-star rating!

Again we enjoyed the tours offered in Breckenridge...they were free and took donations. So cool to hear more about the history and local residents of Breckenridge.
