  • A lot of hype for the drive. I won't tell you what it is at the end of the walk, but I was disappointed since I drive an hour out of the way. If you are adventurous, then give it a go.  more »

  • Awesome! it is a gift shop, firework stand, DairyQueen, gas station, and ANTIQUE MUSEUM AT THE SAME TIME, THEY EVEN HAVE A LITERAL ONE OF A KIND GUN! They have friendly staff and everything! 5-5 Experience, A must visit if you are taking N Johnson Road to New Mexico, and unlike other expensive antique museum The Thing Museum costs 75¢ for kids and 1$ for adults! Once again, a must visit!
  • This was campy and fun, with typical gift shop and dairy queen. Worth the stop. My son was disturbed, that was fun for me. ;p
  • We go to DQ every other week . Good food quick. Quite nice place clean great mountain views
  • For one dollar you enter what is basically an antiques collection. I've always wanted to stop by, but never went in the direction of Dragoon. We finally stopped by on our way back from New Mexico. Not something you need to see twice, but worth it to finally​ know what "the thing" is
  • A fun touristy gift shop with a short walking tour that has some cool antique cars and fun stuff to look at.
