“Great starting place for connecting with local history. Our area is rich in history, and the Sheridan County Museum is very conveniently located just West of I-90 exit #23. Plenty to see, and they will help you find more about what interests you.”

“I had a great time learning about the area. I was intreged with the history of the area. I didn't realize coal was such a big part of the areas history. Liked the Indian battle panaramic. I spent 2 hrs there but it can be toured in about an hour if you don't have to many interests in the area.”
