The Harney County Museum does not appear as a traditional museum. When asked what they thought about the displays and museum in general, many patrons felt as though they were in a “cluttered antique superstore albeit nothing’s for sale.”[1] This helps to make the museum fell unique and very ‘Burns-like’ in culture. Simply walking around the exhibits a visitor can see an exact-scale replica of the Liberty Bell (with the crack) made entirely of pinecones, to the dozens upon dozens of photos that document the area’s history. If any visitor wishes to experience Burns, to come to understand its history and people, the Harney County Museum is well worth the small fee to enter.
