  • Pleasantly surprised. This was a last minute decision to stop in. The interactive exhibits were a hit with our 2 grandchildren who live in the area. Great for a cold and chilly day.  more »
  • Stopped in and was surprised at the uniqueness and quality of the displays, activities, and interactive displays. A must for everyone, at least once.  more »
  • I wasn't quite ready for this! Our first stop was the theatre in which we view (and feel) a cattle drive. When the weather turned cold and windy in the film, we actually felt the wind and cold. Then c...  more »

  • We went to the museum with our Homeschool group from Burkburnett, TX. The ages of our group are 2 yrs to about 15 years. We had 15 kids attend with 5 parents. First up on the tour was about 30 minutes of sitting and listening to a lady dressed in period clothing talk about Lizzie Johnson and her life. She was not interactive with the kids except to tell them not to lay down or to sit still. Then afterwards was the art museum for more listening and sitting followed by a scavenger hunt in the art museum where there is no running or touching. Afterwards was an art project that we were enjoying up until the guide said we had about 2 minutes to finish and half the kids were not close to done. Off to the chuck wagon room for another 10 minutes of some lady talking about life on the trail and getting impatient with our kids not wanting to sit still. The animatronic cowboys were fun to watch. We then got to spend about 10 minutes in what was called the interactive area. It consisted of lasso practice, a stamp branding iron and a general store with a few interactive pieces that made noise. they expected our lunch time to be only 20 minutes. At that point myself and a few other moms were ready to just leave. One of the guides asked us to please stay and give the movie a chance. She thought the kids might like it cause it was motioned and had smells and wind. We gave it a try. The movie I will say was great, the chairs vibrated and there was a mock storm complete with rain and the kids did enjoy it. Afterwards we figured since the kids were doing ok that we would try the game so we did. the lady read the cards way to fast and most of the kids could not keep up with counting the beans out. We left at that point. All in all there were a few things I liked but it mostly felt rushed and too restrictive and not at all fun. I would not go again even for free. And the staff, Specifically Mary needs to not be so impatient when it comes to kids. This place might be great for 5th grade and up and certainly not for kids with ADHD who cannot sit still for hours.
  • Good for kids birthday parties. NO BATHROOM THOUGH!
  • The museum in itself is a great place to take the kids. The biggest downfall about this place was that one of the tour guides didn’t have the patience needed for 1st graders, very irritable and not good at keeping the children engaged.
  • Cool movie that has surprises at the beginning of tour. Also has a small souvenir store. Very nice employees!
  • All the kids should visit here it was amazing taking them on a field trip, there was so much to learn and do without being like a museum boring feel.
