I have visited the museum on many occasions and have also used their research information. This organization and its volunteers do a wonderful job recording and safeguarding historical items from our county.

They play a vital role in our community and I appreciate all their efforts.

I have been to the museum many times and have always enjoyed the experience and the volunteers on duty. My family has contributed many items to the museum and will continue to support the museum in any way we are able. How fortunate we are to have a museum in which to store our history.
I also enjoyed touring the web page and will return to it as I have time to browse..

I have visited the Douglas County Museum on several occasions and I find the need to go back to learn more. The persons who run the museum have given up their personal time and provided effort in making the museum all that it can be, considering they would be able to do more if they had more funds.

The museum has grown since I have been a child. Now I can take my children there and take a guided tour of the museum.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

like for them to be open more. It would give the community more variety of time.

What an asset for a small community of 3,000 people. Any one that loves to look back in history will find the Douglas County Historical and Genealogy group most helpful. The cemetery books are a big help for me, thanks to staff that put countless hours at work volunteering for us.

Their cemetery book for my cemetery, Walnut Grove Cemetery, was most useful for me to do a cross-reference guide for folks to be able to find their loved ones grave site. A nice hand-out for Memorial Day.

have them receive more funding so they could be open more often.

Rating: 5 stars  

It is run by all volunteers and Have over 5000 items on display. It would be hard to view everything in just one tour thru. We would like to see it stay open more than one day a week in the winter and 3 days in the summer

I have visited this museum a few times and enjoyed the tours very much. Even though I do not live in Douglas county, my family has lived there for generations and I have enjoyed learning about my family history there. The tour guides are very knowledgeable, helpful and friendly. ( We particularly enjoyed the old medical equipment display. )
