  • Best place ever to stop and see all kinds of things to see and do. Have an interactive information center to learn more about Billy the kid. There is also a store gift shop with lots of amazing items. The cost of the museum is five dollars per person and you can take all kinds of pictures inside also. You can not get there from the highway, you have to take a country road to get there however it is worth the ride.
  • This was an awesome place to visit. One of the most interesting museums I've ever been to. If they made it in the 1800s chances are you'll find one there. Everything from guns to steam engines and horse saddles. Lots of native American artifacts and clothing. And the gift shop.... Has the best prices of any gift shop I've ever been to. A must see if your in this part of new mexico
