Featuring education lessons, special events, publications, exhibits, displays and public programmes, they offer 3 to 4 changing exhibits every year on various topics.
The permanent exhibits include a 1890's General Store and the Ron White Native Exhibit that showcases over 4000 artifacts from an Native Site excavated in the early 1900's and again in the 1960's.

The museum opened it's doors in 1977 and since has run lots of fun events for the whole family to raise some funds in the running of the museum. They do lunches, where you'll get served a main, desert and drink for a wonderful dining experience! They offers tours throughout the year and yard sales, so you could pick yourself up a bargain or two!
From structured lessons for the young ones, or an informal guided tour, the museum will take you through the history in a way that's accessible for all ages.
