  • A small historic site with museum, video, and garden showing local plant life. It is easily reached after you visit Lincoln. The museum is a quick walkthrough, but showcases firefighting techniques....  more

  • Super cute and worth stopping. If you have fun memories of our dear little smoky the bear then this is a must stop for you. It's not on the way and it's not convenient but also the drive through that area is pretty beautiful. Lots of cool exhibits and items for sale as well. Also grounds with exhibits outside.
  • What a museum and gift shop! Smokey the Bear has been memorialized in such a special way. The history here and his story is amazing and will luckily live on in our hearts forever. The museum is a must. Then you exit out into the gardens. Beautiful and also contain his burial site. After strolling through the gardens you exit out to the nearby gift shop. Amazing memorabilia and special gifts are available to purchase. Nat was waiting patiently. Her knowledge and love for both Smokey and the town was impressive. This is a must stop for all ages.
