Museum

Enter the past … we’ll make your journey fun.

History is exciting, especially at the Heritage Museum. Our team continually reveals special chapters of our communities’ stories that bring the past and present together so you have a deeper understanding of why we live, work and play the way we do today. We tell the story so it’s fascinating for children (yes, even teens) and adults. Each exhibit, each special event is enriching. You’ll have fun along the way … and at the end of today’s journey … you’ll leave excited to return for the next.
