Great museum for a small town. My boys enjoyed the hands on displays and all the artifacts on display. It is small but a very nice surprise.

The inside of the museum if full of very interesting artifacts, but my favorite part was the historical cabins that were brought in from around the area. They highlighted local historical figures and gave a great overview of the tie hack industry. Really worth seeing!
