  • Loved this museum! Lots of good info on Charles Goodnight. Really enjoyed the windmill exhibit and also the town replica downstairs.  more »
  • Spent 5 hours on a cold rainy day in Canyon at the PPHM. If you are a Texan and like art and museums you will enjoy this visit. Oil and gas and pioneer exhibits are very well done.  more »

  • There are lots of interesting things to see here and it is more than worth the admission price. My 4 year old son had a blast here.
  • Always fascinating exhibits. Many guns on display including that of Charles Goodnight if you search long and hard.
  • This place is one of the coolest places I've been to, it has old cars, dinosaur bones, guns, art, and even a Pioneer town! There is a little bit of something for everyone, we loved it! There are 3 floors all together, including the basement. Wear comfortable shoes and expect to be there a few hours to see everything, it wasn't very expensive; $10 for an adult. Definitely worth the trip!
  • Fantastic place for adults and children! Beautiful, informative, interesting.
  • This is a totally AWESOME place! If you like HISTORY, they have tons of it. If you like art, THIS IS WHERE GEORGIA O'KEEF LIVED, for a chunk. If you are interested in the OIL FIELD---This is the place! Wear comfortable shoes, you are going to be HERE A WHILE!!!
