  • It's basically a bunch of old junk and Billy the kids rifle, if that's even real. It was $5 per person. Skip the museum and just see the real grave.  more »

  • The grave of the Kid, his buddies Charlie Bowdrie and Tom Folliard, and those of Maxwells, Salazars, Guiterezes, and cacti and lizards galore.... what's not to like? The museum has some nice artifacts, including Billy's butcher knife, and is run by really sweet people. Worth the time and then some.
