A nice clean brand new Museum. It's well laid out and very informative. Excellent for adults all the way down to 6 years old

Nice small museum, recently redone, with exhibits that cover a wide range of local history, from before settlement up to the present day. A great place to spend a few hours on a rainy Saturday.

Completely renovated and just re-opened a few days ago. Very professionally done, and lots to see for everyone in the family. We’ll be back.

I've been to the Lake County Discovery Museum and now the new Dunn Museum and my family and I enjoyed the older one much more. I was a bit disappointed. The location and the displays were much more interesting at the Discovery Museum.
