Among the many treasures at The Jeff Matthews Museum are the historic cabins dating back to 1834, Victorian fashions and over 10,000 Native American artifacts. There is also a fascinating collection of African antiquities, one of the largest Kodiak bears on display anywhere in the world and a tribute to Kylene Barker Hibbard, Galax's own Miss America of 1979. You'll also be treated to an extensive collection of hunting trophies and one of the first pianos to arrive in Galax. There are thousands of pictures and historic items to enjoy dating back as far as 1792. We even have a real covered wagon!
