The only unfortunate thing is, they don't make the cheese. It would be more interesting if they could make the cheese. But it is an interesting tour of a cheese factory from the 1800's.

Thoroughly our visit to the museum. Guide helpful and informative, but also we were allowed to wander at our own pace. Well worth a visit.

A nice place for the history of the town and county. Great for kids and adults alike. Does not take to long to go through.It is a very inexpensive bit of entertainment, I think the cost is $3 per person.

We were in Ingersoll last weekend and went to the museum on Monday morning. There are several buildings with so much historical information and memorabilia. There is a magnificent wood carving scene that took over ten years to complete. The detail is amazing. We learned...More
