This museum is rich in local history, highly recommended for children and adults as well. Beautiful old building in an historical old town with antique shops and of course The Golden Lamb Inn, of which we have stayed many a time. Delicious food!!

Very nice museum in a small town. Lebanon has so much history and it is well documented in this museum. The rotating display of art was a fun addition!
