The place is full of history. Went with a friend and our kids, 2 each. Even the kids loved it. You could easily spend hours looking at everything.

Everyone was so helpful in finding genealogy treasures. Amazing journey through time with the museum. A must see. And the Lincoln room was so nice.

We traveled to Hardin County to learn about our family history and trace our ancestors. This museum was a total gold mine of the local history. It is very well done and worth a visit if you want to learn about the area. Highly recommend.
