“Attractive displays of local history & businesses.”
Reviewed 15 November 2012

Although not what you would call 'extensive,' the museum's well thought out and very well executed displays about local industry and buisnesses was time well spent (approx. 1 hour) to learn a bit more about Cumberland's industries and buisnesses and character over the years. And the price was more than right! (No fee, just a donation box.)

“Worth the stop!”
Reviewed 23 October 2012

Our Museum of American Glass 2012 Glass Gathering activity was held in the Museum. What an awesome experience! The Museum was extrememly accommodating to our group of 88 and went out of their way to make it 'all about glass' for us. The remaning parts of the Museum are very much worth the stop. My grandgirls would have loved the 'Sleeping Beauty' exhibit. There is something for everyone in all the exhibits.

“Nice”
Reviewed 30 August 2012

The Allegany Museum is free and if you are interested in a bit of history. It's worth the time. It's small, but very nice.

“Small Town, Small Museum”
Reviewed 6 July 2012

What can you expect from a small town? This museum is pretty neat I'll have to admit, but it is really small, there should be a lot more exhibits than what there is. I've been to bigger museums than this.

“Great little museum.”
Reviewed 20 June 2012 via mobile

Charming small museum, full of very interactive exhibits. The clothing exhibit looks like a shop, etc. wonderful way to get more interesting background on the area, with everything from history of breweries to an old elevator operator's unit.
