Although I am a former Cub Scout and Explorer, I have to admit that I dindn't find much to interest me at the Post Rock Scout Museum. But in all fairness, I visited when Kathie Crispin was not present to describe the artifacts and tell the story of the museum. The experience may be much different when she is present.
The museum is part of the Non-profit organization the Crispin Antiquarian Foundation and shares the Cummins Block Building with Crispin's Drug Store Museum, curated by Kathie's husband, Jack Crispin, Jr.
