A great place to visit for local history. Four levels to browse through with a wide variety of displays. Cost is only $3/ adult $1/child. There are a lot of stairs to climb, so keep that in mind. There was only air conditioner in one room on one floor, so we were pouring sweat on this August visit. Clean restrooms.

This is one of the best museums that displays the history of the local people. We plan on going back to see some of the displays we were not able to review.

It looks like a cool museum but it would be nice to have expanded weekend hours. (I work too much)

Beautiful old schoolhouse built in 1904, is what I was told. I was there for a musical event with Marty Haggard, and the acoustics in the building are terrible.

Don’t rely on the hours of operations and the website, call before you go. We went during their open hours and the entrance was locked. Luckily for us, there is a nice playground next to the museum.

Every room of this 3-story building is filled wall-to-wall with historical artifacts, antiques, collectibles, clothing, personal belongings, furnishings, & tools of various trades, mostly from the area around Palestine. Even a log cabin was moved inside here. The staff are very knowledgeable, very helpful, & more friendly than staff at any other museum Ive been to in years. A must for every museum lover traveling anywhere in this region.

Best museum around. The exhibits are great and the auditorium rental is the best price around. Dulcimer festival in March each year is one of a kind.
