  • This is not a must see activity but it was interesting they had a street set up just like an old Western town it was kind of fun to look around 
  • Historic, full of authentic artifacts that are hard to find anywhere else. Amazing gift shop. Friendly staff. Highly recommend! 
  • I really enjoyed my visit. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The collection iis extensive and the exhibits are very well done. Well done historical film to complete the tour. 
  • 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.
  • Very nice old West museum. Lots of hands on exhibits to touch and even small shooting range. A old western town shops like barber shop, grocery store, an inside house, wagons and lots more.
  • Cool old west stuff, some of the old machines were out of order though. Panning for gold here is not really worth it. They seed a few tiny pieces once or twice per day and the rest is fools gold. Fun for the kids, just don't expect them to find any real gold.
  • Really didn't know what to think from the name. The place is jammed full of great examples from long ago. Inside you will find an old main street and you can peer inside and see what it was like long ago. The video at the end of the display I wish was at the beginning, the history of that building and the surrounding buildings is fascinating.
  • It was more than we expected. Really cool looking at all the antiques from that time period. There was also a nice little theater where an informational video was playing.
