  • My kids love the hands-on airplane, stagecoach, schoolroom and going up to the top of the tower. I feel that the entrance fee is a little high ($7)but we use our family pass quite a bit and like to pop by for an hour.
  • This tiny museum was wonderful. It was great to read about the history of the West as it shaped the United States.
  • A good history of western Colorado, I would be happy to go back many times.
  • Very interesting. Interactive. Great view from tower.
  • Great little museum right in the center of town. Nice area to walk around in downtown Grand Junction and spend the afternoon in. The museum is quite small, but uses its space and exhibits quite well. Lots of stories, artifacts and history from the various periods in the development of the old West. Great for kids with a bunch of displays for them to get into and climb up on. Has a lookout tower at the top that also shows you what building was what in the old days. The staff at the reception is quite nice and friendly as well.
