  • Quaint, a bit small, but full of artifacts. Neat books and crannies including a recreation of a government office. Included is a small theater outlining the history of the area. Great stop.

  • This is an amazing museum, with a great collection of artifacts, photos, and references for visitors to learn and explore. The staff answered many of my questions and pointed me to other places in town that may be of interest. I would definitely come here again on Saturday when the Pon Yam Store is open.
