  • We went to the Museum by chance (having mistaken the visitor center of the national park) and we have not regretted. There are all the furniture of the nineteenth and twentieth century (pioneer wagons, agricultural machine...). Some sections are prehistoric tools and of course tents and Indian objects. Bravo for this provision and conservation work. Don't miss:-the Indian ship in the form of nut (leather)-shell - the quilts: on gorgeous beds of the XIX century - the room of the maps (the limits of the States have often changed). -the history of the woman doctor who commutes ranches with his cart. She was venerated throughout the country! Allow at least an hour of visit or two.

  • Great interactive museum suited for both kids and adults. $10 admission priced seems high but after experiencing the museum I would say the price is worth it. The ear buds provided didn't really seem necessary except for one of the places the rest mainly just provided music for the short video clips. Kids activities may have used the ear buds more. The video viewing rooms were a great touch such as hearing Indian history while standing in a teepee and gazing into the fire pit. Highly recommend this stop!
  • Great place to visit. And there's a lot of things in area to do and see on your way to yellow stone on the way back !!
  • Great museum! Highly recommended!
  • Well put together. The educational potential is vast. Well worth the price of admission.
  • Amazing.
