    We just stopped in Fort Sumner on the way back to Texas from Santa Fe to visit the Billy the kid museum. Very reasonable rates and friendly hosts. The museum is so much more than an insight into the w...  more »

    Awesome museum!!!!! Actually quite large and the employees were super friendly!!!! Lots of awesome and amazing things to see! Thought the gun room was the coolest part. They also had an area with a video playing, a room with old type writers and cameras, Barbie's/dolls, old wagons, car room. Can't remember how much we paid but I think it was only like $12 for two of us.. don't quote me on that but it was inexpensive especially for the size of the museum. Didn't originally plan on stopping here but we made a last minute decision and went and we are so happy we did. If you like history and old Western stuff, definitely recommend.

    I was pretty surprised at the size of the museum and the amount of stuff to look at. The owners and workers were incredibly helpful. I'll definitely sup by again if I get the chance. Make sure you check out the room with the guns. They have one of Billy the Kid's rifles.

    The people running it are friendly and there is a lot of nice stuff too see. Neat stuff from that time period and newer. Interesting and worth checking out if you are in the area.

    Pretty cool place to visit! This place takes you back in time. It's worth the $5 entry fee!

    Went in to grab some trinkets for people. Parking is ample, had a tour of the museum but didnt have time, as we were traveling to Cali. Prices are very reasonable considering it is a tourist attraction. Staff was friendly amd helpfull. A must stop.
