  • The Billy the Kid Museum in Fort Sumner is a great, informative museum. The staff was very friendly and helpful. It's a must see for any fans of the old West in general. Some very nice exhibits includ...  more »
  • This museum has a rather large inventory of items from Billy the Kid's general time era. There are times when you have to question the relevance of some of the displays and sort through them to get to...  more »
  • This grave site is in the middle of nowhere and the only thing open is the cemetery. The building next to it is shuttered and there is absolutely nothing else in the area to look at.  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.
  • Excellent little museum stop. We watched a great movie and were surprised by the similarities (and differences) to the movie "Young guns.". They have a great display of period era items such as phones sewing machines and handguns. Well worth a trip!
  • A spectacular museum much bigger than expected. My husband and I really enjoyed it.
