  • It's was only 2 dollars per person and well worth it. They say it's haunted. My favorite part was upstairs where they jailed the children and women.  more »
  • Really interesting. It was in use through 1990. An amazing place with stories on the walls. Take time to read through through them. Also, get locked up to see what it feels like and get a wanted poste...  more »

  • We read about this museum in a brochure given to us by the owner at the hotel we were staying at. We spent about an hour and a half browsing the written histories and chatting with the man at the front desk. He told us very entertaining stories about experiences people have had with ghosts. He told us about the basement that housed sick people when the hospital didn't have any room. He also mentioned the boxer who stayed due to stealing and had a lot to say about the women's ward upstairs. I found it interesting that the youngest jailed kids were in for two months for derailing a train. I definitely recommend this museum to get a true picture of the wild west.
  • Super fun! Love these little pieces of history! Great customer service by the gals up front too!
  • Wish there was more to read about and an actual guided tour. Its very intriguing and interesting! Only 2 bucks to get in. You can even personalize your own jail photo and dress up as an inmate! Interactive and fun for kids
  • Really cool museum. It use to be an actual jail and the admission is only two dollars a person above 13 and 13 and younger are free.
  • My husband and I took our 4 boys ages range from 12-18. We all enjoyed it! Couldn't believe admission was only $2! The ladies were extremely friendly!
