The curator was full of historical information! We spent 2.5 hours here. It's too bad the original Hot Springs swimming pool has been cemented over. This would be a great attraction these days! If you like history you will enjoy this Museum!

One of the best exhibits for a small town historical museum. They cover all walks of life and culture in the 1850's. This is a must see if you are a history buff. One of the best gem exhibits around.
