We took part in the wonderful Twain Trolley tour then checked out the museum. Very well put together. We learned a lot! It is a small kid friendly and interactive museum. If you are in the area...check it out and do the Twain Trolley Tour!
A great little museum with some really interesting exhibits on show. Elmira has more history that you would think and really should promote this more. Mark Twain, the Langdon family and one of the deadliest Civil War POW camps. You could easily fill a couple of days here. The trolley bus also leaves from in front of the museum and... 更多
The museum is housed in a old bank building; which in itself is very interesting. The old vault and infrastructure is pretty much all intact. For the architecture alone its worth seeing. But the museum charges a small fee ($5 for seniors...) and is very reasonably priced. It offers a glimpse of the history of Elmira, including Native Americans, immigrants... 更多
You have seen at least a dozen of these museums: depicting a pioneer town that grew into a locally important town which is now in serious decline. The time of fame for Elmira was during the civil war and for 50 years on (including Mark Twain's stay here when he wrote some of his most famous novels); today it looks... 更多
This is a small, volunteer-run museum located near the center of downtown Elmira. The front of the building is an ex-bank, and the structure has several historically significant features. The museum itself is relatively small, but has a surprisingly good collection of local artifacts, which are well presented and explained. The displays are laid out in chronological order and do... 更多
As a former resident of Elmira, I was curious to visit the museum to see how well the history of the area was documented and displayed. The museum is lovely, well laid out and definitely worth a visit! The Samuel L. Clemens / Mark Twain artifacts are great.
Well organized informative displays about local history, telling about local events, local communities, local people. The building was a bank in Elmira's early years, and the safe, etc., are still right there. Some displays are permanent and some temporary, so if we ever return to Elmira we would visit again. The staff was knowledgeable and helpful. They have a free... 更多
This is a small but quite interesting local museum. History of the Civil War prison, the Chemung Canal and Mark Twain's connection to the area.
A friend and I were in Elmira for a show at the First Arena and we were looking for something to do before we needed to find supper when we stumbled upon this little gem. We walked in, and the employee at the front desk informed us that there had been a fundraising event there earlier at which there was... 更多
