You won't believe all the stuff in there spread out among several rooms. It's very eclectic with interesting things to look at from old tools to kitchen items to medical equipment to pottery to dolls to fossils to arrowheads to all kinds of firearms. And that's just a start. Well worth a visit.

Make sure to utilize the women's restroom...its absolutely marvelous! So many intriguing artifacts, such as the moustache tea cup! A glimpse of old Confederate monies, guns, surgical instruments, handcuffs, etc. Also a Texas State Flag that has been to the moon!!

This museum is awesome! It has many rooms of great historical artifacts. It is actually pretty big and requires a lot of walking up and down stairs. The model train display out back is great! I enjoyed our visit to Jefferson and this museum.

Good collection of historical items as well as a large collection of dolls. The miniature railroad exhibit behind the main building is fascinating and fun for all ages. I gave it four stars because the upper floors aren't accessible, although the docent did say that an elevator is in the works.

Many artifacts, articles, letters and items for viewing. Three floors and a basement to observe at your own pace. Knowledgeable staff ready to answer questions.
