Review for Kentucky Gateway Museum Center, Maysville, KY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

this museum is absolutely delightful. Anyone who has had family that started out in or near Maysville or Mason County Kentucky would find it so. Our ancestors lifestyles from the very first white settlers to the present is easily seen. The geneaolgy library is extensive. Even my own formerly unknown cousins have found me through their research there. Every time I am home I drop in and have brought many people to visit the museums. And I haven't even mentioned the exquisite miniatures. Just one more of the delights of my hometown.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

it demonstrates what our ancestors' lives would have been

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Everyone is unbelievely helpful

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

as above. Hire more staff, do something wiht the graveyard outback. catalog all the cemeteries in the area and put it on line

Ways to make it better...

had more funds to get to the records in the court house attic and get them online

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

more folks to catalog stuff. It's boring I've done it. and it just has to be done.

One thing I'd also say is that...

It's a wonderful place.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?
