This is a sweet little museum, and definitely worth visiting while in Quincy. It's great for families or just adults. It's located very near shops and restaurants, so you can make a day trip out of a visit to Quincy.

There's not a lot of indoor attractions in Q-Town, so a visit here may be to your liking. Two floors of displays, a library, a barn, and some outdoor displays in the rear.
