  • Great place to stop. Admission is fair priced. There are many interesting things to see. There's also a nice gift shop with good prices.
  • Museum had so many neat and wonderful things to look at and learn about. The Gentleman who owns and runs the museum is friendly and shares some of the history behind the Museum itself and how it got started. It was a informative and great stop on a long road trip.
  • Very nice with a lot of artifacts. The owner was very friendly and knowledgeable of the area. He gift shop had gifs in a wide variety of price points.
  • Very neat place to stop and take family in. Wonderful items displayed.
  • 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.
