A very cool small museum. Lots of interesting items pertaining to the areas local history. Entry is free, but they do accept donations. As a bonus, they have a small area with used books for sale dirt cheap. Had to pick up a few.

We stopped there to look for connections to our family history. The volunteers there were extremely helpful in our research. We were there early and it got more crowded as time went by. We left with copies of newspaper articles of family events and we were thrilled with the assistance we received.

I first came to the museum in Oct 2015 to search for information on my biological relatives. The museum has a lot of interesting artifacts, and upstairs in the genealogy dept is well organized, and the staff is great, and boy they have everything to help one trace their family history for the county! This review doesn't let me go back to Oct 2015 on the option bar below asking when I traveled.

The museum is a wonderful collection of local history and artifacts displayed for viewing. A unique gift shop has items that will interest you made by locals. I pick up limestone items here often. There is a nice meeting room available and often speakers on local subjects are offered. Staff is helpful if you are searching for something about Lawrence County.

I like to visit local museums and thought I would stop here on my way home to Virginia. I have been to many local county museums and this one is not much different. It is filled with scores of articles donated by local residents, including uniforms from World War I and II, household items, personal artifacts, high school letter jackets, articles on past famous local residents, etc. There are a lot of personal items to see, but not much history provided about the county or city. There are interesting multiple choice display poles that asks history questions about the region and state and one can learn from that, so perhaps that was done in lieu of an actual history display. You read a question, are given choices and then push a button what you think the answer is. What I would have liked to have seen, as well as general household and personal possession things, was a solid history display that would provide some historical information about the city and county. But what makes this museum different than many I have visited, however, is the amount of African-American historical displays and information provided. I was quite surprised. There is a nice display about a family that was enslaved in Virginia, freed upon their master's death, and they moved and set up a farm in Lawrence County. There was also an elementary school set-up and other information about past African-American residents. The best part is that there is no admission charge.

I arrived at the museum about a half-hour before they closed, so did not have an opportunity to go upstairs where they have a historical library that houses genealogical sources, books, maps and records of the area. Since I do not have family in the area, I did not take time to visit the library. Perhaps it is very good. I applaud any local museum that provides any kind of history and especially genealogical resources for residents of the area. There is also a little gift shop which has books on local history and a few handmade arts and crafts which are quite inexpensive.

Can't say that I was warmly welcomed. When I walked in the door, I was asked rather curtly "can I help you?" like the lady wondered what I was doing there. I said, I am here to see the museum (what did she think I was there for?). I am a docent at historical sites, and I always warmly welcome people. I think it is very important to make everyone feel at home. A nice "welcome to our museum, if you have any questions, please ask!" would have been so much better. Giving it three stars for the displays and perhaps for the less than welcoming atmosphere. It is almost a four star stop if you consider the amount of African-American information provided here. If you are not looking into your genealogical history, and are just passing through, stop here if you have the time. It's not a must see, and I would not go out of your way, but if you have an hour or so, take a look.

Indiana's small town county museums are an often over looked excellent resource. The Lawrence county museum in Bedford is a perfect example of this. They have many great artifacts with specific local flavor and displayed in a professional manner with extensive historical background for most items. I've spent many afternoon there and intend to return.
