  • The curator of the museum was very knowledgeable and happy to answer questions. Very interesting. Kids liked it too.
  • Small but subsequent museum of not only the story of the Dalton Gang and their ill fated raid on Coffeyville, but also highlights Coffeyville history, notable residents and regional stories. You can opt to watch a History Channel documentary on the Dalton Gang and the raid, however it is long. You can easily spend a couple of hours going through all the documents, pictures and walking through downtown to follow the Daltons downfall. However, I would not recommend this place to young children as there are numerous instances of the Dalton Gangs death photos throughout the museum.
  • Our friends enjoyed the Dalton Museum and all the history of the raid in the Plaza area. The old photos of Coffeyville were very interesting and fun to see. Very nice museum. I Liked!
  • Its a small place size of a house. Lots of info stuffed into the small place. I believe the prices was high adults 6 dollars and kids 3.
  • What a great history lesson in "crime doesnt pay!" So much history in one place! The volunteers are great too! Everyone from the youngest to the oldest found something interesting. And don't forget to follow the horseshoe prints over to Death Alley and the old jail.
