This was even better than ,I had thought it would be, after reading the description on the internet. Such a vast and eclectic collection of things! Enjoyed reading descriptions of Dr. Libby and what he was like too. Nice building and greeter was the best!

This venerable little museum, across the street from Lake Winnipesaukee, holds more interesting artifacts and displays than one can imagine.
