We were very pleasantly surprised at the amount of information we received from a very knowledgeable young man when we visited the museum . Also the video on cheese making was interesting , although abit dated .

"Free" however accepts donations but well worth it as the Museum presents a well documented history of the area. Well maintained grounds with many antiques and historical notes/plaques to read. Closed Sundays.

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.
