This was a great little museum tucked just behind where the original fort stood and along the river. There is a little bit of everything in here telling the story of Bedford and the area from over 200 years ago up thru the mid 20th century.

Cute little museum with a lot of local history. Off the back of the museum is a small park at rivers edge that includes a small playground and grassy areas for the kids to unwind.

A piece of history not to be missed. They appear to still be in the midst of properly displaying items but they have numerous items to view and a nice history line including carriages and a full sized Conestoga wagon. Nice museum store.
A wonderful museum that captures the essence of the French and Indian War. The current museum is currently being remodeled to serve the visiting public during the entire year! In the past past the museum was an eclectic collection of historical memorabilia. Now the displays are organized in such a manner to tell the story of Bedford's place in History!
A nice stop for the entire family. Nice displays, knowledgeable staff and a fair admission fee. We enjoyed a walk along side the river, had a picnic, fed the ducks and geese and enjoyed a beautiful day.
Looked it up and they were supposed to be open. This has happened more than once to us. Would like to see it one of these days.
