Sprag Pole Museum

One of the most eclectic collections for a museum, collected over a life time by one man. The collection of explosives, and small arm and shells is impressive, home to many odd exibits, One man's dream, worth the trip to see it. Bar and restaurant isn't bad either for food and drink.

Recommend seeing it in the warmer months, as museum is not heated.

Five old buildings on the main street of Murray are connected and contain the Sprag Pole Museum. See a 1909 calliope, the World's Longest Wood Chain, special exhibits of old-timey shops and rooms.
