We enjoyed our visit to the museum. We really enjoyed the film of the Kilcher family history and homesteading from the view of a homesteading wife and mother. The homestead log cabin was interesting to view.

The museum has an eclectic collection of natural history and local history displays, and a weak art collection. This would be worthwhile for anyone who appreciates small town museum efforts (as we do). I should add that the staff (not sure if paid or volunteer)...More
