My personal opinion...
When I first arrived to this Museum, I was really disappointed. It seemed as if no one has visited this place in a while. Many of the rooms had lots of spiderwebs and at first it seemed as if this visit was going to be a waste of time.

The man that greeted us was very excited to have visitors, he was dressed in a white t-shirt and dirty jeans.However, this man was willing to give us a tour and was so excited that he told us we had just stepped into a "time machine." I was not sure if to be scared or excited.

Once we started the tour, I was entertained with the stories he was telling us. I was amazed and curious to know the years of all the different appliances and clothing articles we found.

Once the tour was over, I already had certain people in mind of who to bring to this Ranch Musuem. I was glad that I decided to bring my 13-year old sister along because otherwise she would not have seen these artifacts. I was pleased to hear that she enjoyed every minute of it as well.

The tour guide let us know that the city just recently took over the museum, and will dedicate their time and money to it.

As a teacher, I would definitely bring my students here. It would give them a good idea on how technology and appliances have changed over time.

It's sad that some places as wonderful as this one don't get visited as much as it should. Through your ideas and photos, I can see that this would be a great educational place to visit. I had never heard of it, much less visited the site, but it seems like a great place to visit sometime. Again, great pictures. Good Job! =)

Denise,
Thank you for adding your personal insight about this visit. I suggest that you share your visit with the city--they would be glad to know that you care about this site and found it to be so educational and exciting. Thanks for taking the time and effort to put together such a great blog!
