We so enjoyed this interesting museum highlighting the history of Bedford, PA. Lots of artifacts from various time periods, plus thoughtfully prepared displays detailing the items. It took us about an hour to peruse the space, with a moderate amount of reading. Visitors could easily...More

Fun historical site for young and old. Beautiful scenery on the river. Log fort and museum with nice gift shop. Adds to a nice drive and visit to small town America.

This museum is a stone's throw from center of town. Must do during Fall Foliage Festival for scenic views of the river valley. The museum is in excellent condition. Worth a stop when in Bedford.

Maximum use of a relatively small facility and all of it with local connections. Major historical events are covered as well as the more mundane every day life of local people. We're glad we went.

Starting from Paleo times to the not too distant times. Great detail on French and Indian War of which we were not too conversant. The staff was very helpful. Nice gift shop too.

While not large, the displays are well done. Provides a nice, concise historical look at the Bedford area. Displays cover the early Native American period and the early arrival of European settlers. The exhibits are labeled and presented very nicely.

Interesting reconstructed fort, lot of history in that area of Bedford County PA. My mother's family was there in 1714, so we really enjoyed being in the area.

Brought two children, ages 9 and 13, and they surprised themselves by how much they enjoyed the variety in the exhibits at this museum. There are wagons and battlefield and old musical instruments and strange old medical devices. Staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. Great...More

I was surprised, there is a bit to see inside the museum. This fort was used by the British during the French and Indian War. It is not the original site of the fort. They were updating inside.
