We rolled in right before closing one day. The couple managing the place stayed open an extra 15 minutes so we could look around. They told us stories about the artifacts on display. You could tell they truly enjoy working there.

Very friendly reception when we walked into the museum. We were escorted around the museum and when needed our questions were answered without hesitation. The museum is not very large but it contains a lot of history.
