The museum was very interesting and we especially enjoyed walking outside and visiting each of the buildings- barbershop, general store, church, school, etc., in their original forms.

This is such a beautiful musem. I have no idea how such a small town could afford to have created such a world-class historical park. American Pickers would love this place!

For a small museum, this is a must visit. Great period displays, buildings, farm equipment, etc. They also have a very nice petroleum history building. Property also includes an old home, chapel, school, blacksmith shop and other interesting things.
