While the local artifacts are nice, the handgun collection is one of the most unique in the country. And...there are not many places where a Tucker automobile is on display.

Great place to spend a few hours. Took a boy scout troop, and our guide managed to keep Tiger Cubs interested for over an hour which is pretty impressive. Very cool cars and lots of local history.
