The Thrifty Scout Museum is a privately owned collection displayed in a private residence. This is the personal collection of Mike McAdams. In May of 2013, the museum hosted an open house. To accomplish this, 7 additional 6-foot tables were placed in the living room, dining room and family room to supplement the normal Museum displays. The following images were taken during the open house. Many images have “hot spots” which, when clicked, will show enlarged views of the displays or take you to detailed images of that collection.
