I enjoy being at this museum. The people are friendly and helpful. So many interesting exhibits. The stamp mill is operational and demonstrations are given on certain days. This summer they also showed some of the old westerns in the Chapel and it will become a yearly occurance. At different times of the day you can hear the docents tell you some interesting stories about the history of the area and you might be lucky enough to even hear some music from native flutes. Watch for the pass books for the kids. Who is Hacksaw Tom? What is an arista? "Wow! model trains!" mmmmmmmm sasparilla!! Did you see that tree trunk on the patio? How many animals are carved into it? Birds, lizzards.....native people and so much more can you find. AND SO MUCH MORE I had and still find more I have seen before!
I have taken my family here a number of times and we always have a blast. Between learning about the area's history, getting to see some of the old mining equipment, or just talking to the friendly and knowledgeable staff, we have never had a bad experience.
My family and I really enjoyed this little eclectic stop. There are too many things to list as it relates to attractions but, it won't fail to entertain young and old alike.
Very spectacular place. So many interesting things to see inside and outside. Specific atmosphere like dozens years ego.
Cute little museum with some fun historical aspects. The museum was expanding and I am excited to see what the new additions are. Be sure to visit "Boot Hill"
