You can spend hours in the museum and still not see everything. I like the old movies of the town and students made in the 40s and 50s, as well as history about the "Shoot Out" and about several heroes from South Pittsburg. Very interesting place to spend time. If you can’t make it on Friday or Saturday morning, the museum can be opened anytime you'd like to visit.

The vintage clothing and magnificent crazy quilt are wonderful! There is a beautiful antique bassinet from years gone by!
