Really enjoyed the variety of things we saw. Reminded me of some of the things that I grew up with. We're very pleased with the help we received regarding a specific interest we had. We were given a folder of very interesting information .

Some good unique exhibits about the history of Florence, The building is relatively new, well lighted and clean. The docent adds great background to many of the exhibits. The museum is a valuable compliment to the McFarland State Park museum at the other end of Florence.

Like many small museums there was a sign in book, next to that a self-guide with little factoids about the artifacts.

I was directed here by the docent at the McFarland State Historical Site. For a history nut it takes over an hour. I may have been here for two. Nice collection of 19th century firearms, farm implements, etc.

Florence is a prison town, with a lot of history. This museum reviews the history of Florence, with a focus on how the locals, state, and federal prisons have dealt with criminals throughout the years. Facinating!

I must admit that I like the smaller museums, mostly because you usually get a guide who lets you know the stories of the items you are seeing. This was the case here, and the pride in the history of this little town was evident. They had many unique and interesting items.
