Asked the person behind the counter what there was to do in Holbrook and he said "nothing". After walking around for a while and looking at brochures, I saw something about a pictograph tour. He knew very little about this tour. Go! Go! Go! On...More

I can't say enough about this delightfully eclectic museum. I won't spoil the surprise but be sure to check out the jail in the basement.

The museum is deceiving because when you first enter it appears the museum is on only one level. The admission is free. Each room has an exhibit about the region. My wife asked about the restrooms and discovered the jail on the way. The jail...More

Excellent historical museum. Details of the violent 19th cent. history of Holbrook. The court moved to more modern quarters and the prisoners to a more modern jail in the 1970's. The original court room, library, clerks rooms, etc. are all interesting. I found a particularly...More
