  • The people were very nice, and I found some of the items on display interesting, but my 6 year old son was really bored. We aren't really old west buffs, so we aren't the target audience. I'd say only...  more »

  • This is just another hwy 24 tourist trap. Come see the old west... give me a break. I checked it out last summer and it was the same old thing... not worth the money  more »

  • Fun but smaller than it looks. That back fence that looks like a big ghost town is just for show. There isn't anything back there. Otherwise it is a cool collection of historical items from the Wild West. Good way to kill an hour or so if you are in the area and like that period in history. -1 star for getting my hopes up with that danged fence!
  • Chieesiest museum ever. U cant even enter the rooms just look in. The "gold panning" umm gross. It was stagnent water with some fools gold thrown in sand. Not much fun but at least its cheap.
  • A really fun place with a lot to see. Also, the kids can pan for real gold (the staff putts a couple of tiny flakes in a wooden sluice outside) Giftshop inside with a whole selection of souvenirs.
  • GTW had some great old wild west relics with real displays of life a hundred years ago . Forgot to mention they have gift shop with neat stuff .
  • It was okay. Nice collection of stuff. My son thought the panning for gold was the best part.
