I always like local museums to get some info about the place and area I visit. Thomas county museum is a relatively small museum that can give you a sense of the local history. I would have given it five stars if the tour guide guy wouldn't talk too much. It took one hour and a half, and when we left, he was still talking. He was funny at least :)

This musuem was the home of the Flowers Family. It was purchased by the Robert's family in the 1940's. On the gounds are several buildings that can be toured by visitors. It is open Monday thru Saturday for daily tours. It is in the center of town in the same area of several historic homes. Stop at the visitor's center and get a copy of " Historic Thomasvile Georgia" to get detailed information about the history of the museum, a map for a walking tour of the historic homes and information about restaurants and shopping downtown. You won't be dissappointed. Thomasville is a great small town to visit.

Wonderful personal tour of historic homes and the museum. Great way to understand why Thomasville was the resort destination at the turn of the century and who used to visit there.

Inexpensive and lots to see. Several houses to tour and even a private bowling alley. There is a great video giving brief history of the area.

We were thinking we would go for a quick tour....little did we know it would provide such detail. Our tour guide was very interesting and provided such detail. There are so many places to see at the museum. It is well worth the admission fee.
