The museum is filled with so much Plymouth history. I learn something new, with each visit. In addition, the museum will host special events throughout the year. I think they do a great job preserving our town's past!

Was doing research on air guns. Plymouth was the home of Daisy Air Guns so visited this museum. It is very well done with nice displays, a knowledgeable staff and well done displays. Well worth visiting to gain knowledge of Plymouth local history.
