Visited 1st time today and took out of town family. We were all so impressed with the quality of the museum exhibits. The staff we dealt with were so friendly and knowledgeable, the whole facility a...nd restrooms were spotless. Clearly, the staff does a wonderful job with everything! So happy we visited and will highly recommend it to anyone. Especially loved the Annie Oakley artifacts - very moving and interesting - every bit of it! See More

I was able to stop there on my way back to MI from visiting my daughters in VA
It was worth the extra driving time. My main reason was the Annie Oakley exhibit. I was overwhelm with the items that... they had. From guns to fine china that was her. I even had the pleasure of meeting an family member of hers. I was at a loss of words. Not only do they have Annie Oakley items. They also have so much more. Carriages, tools are just to name a few. I did not have the time to go to each exhibit, but I will be making another trip down there and spending more time to look at everything they had See More

Roger Cutter and my friend Pauline Eaglewing do a impersonation of Annie and Frank. The drive to Greenville on our way home was worth every minute. What a wonderful museum, wonderful people and Smiths...onian quality displays. We learned so much about Annie and Frank and left with books and posters. Will be back next year. Put it on your travel itinerary. See More

Many local people are featured, and extensive exhibits on Annie Oakley and Lowell Thomas, and the 1795 Treaty of Greenville. Some of these could be modernized but very well presented.

Smithsonian-level exhibits at this gem of a museum. Terrific interpretation and very well laid out. Worth the trip.
