My Husband and I recently arranged for a tour of the Museum for our Corvette Club. What a wonderful experience we had! So many artifacts to look at and boards to read about the French & Indian War! Beautifully displayed!

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.

Absolutely. Keeping in mind that this is a small museum and not a trip to Disney, it IS a very nicely displayed piece of local history. The exhibits are set up very nicely and the information pertaining to them is clearly... More
