This is an outstanding local museum with well done displays from area history. The children's area is excellent and a hit with my grandchildren and the Christmas tree festival is impressive every December, especially the McDonnell house with its Victorian decor.

The museum in Lima is a nice contribution to the community. It’s a great way to spend a few hours. It’s nice to glance back in time and reflect on the history of this area.
