  • Loved seeing where Frank James, Jesse James brother, was held. He was treated like a celebrity. An awesome part of history.
  • We'd give it a 4 1/2 on the haunted scale. Dizziness prevails, so those with heart and/or medical conditions should be advised. Heaviness and vertigo may affect you. Beware, but be open to the spirits present. There's ba great deal of negative residual energy in the jail cells. The Marshall's quarters hold a special every, an specifically the nanny's quarters. You will see things.
  • This is a wonderful museum.
  • Its not that exciting
