  • A fantastic place to get married! Our guests had free entry all night to the museum and the kids had a blast. Great food and large venue for our supper and dance. Our vows were said on the rail station deck. So awesome! I'd say we'd do it again but you know.....:).
  • The sights, smells, and sounds are what keep me coming back to the WDM. When you walk down the streets of boomtown you feel like a pioneer. I would like more engaging and interactive content; it would keep the kids (and me!) more interested.
  • As a family we love visiting here! We get the family pass every year and make sure to visit during Bootown for Halloween and The Festival Of Trees!
  • Good place for kids to run around on a rainy day. The season pass is reasonably priced. They definitely ignores the indigenous population and their contribution prior to European settlement and since. Food in the cafe is decent.
  • One of my very favorite museums, fantastic western town and collection of artifacts inside. HIGHLY recommend visiting if you have an opportunity to.
