  • We had a great time here yesterday! We did a scavenger hunt and even got prizes. We spent two hours exploring code and stagecoaches and gold. What an awesome place, and free! My 10 year old and I had ...  more »
  • Certainly takes you back in time to the stage coach era. Very helpful guide and free memrobillia. Worth the visit  more »
  • This museum was a great flashback to the movies I used to watch on TV and I'm sure kids today would be totally intrigued by all the authentic devices and interactive exhibits in this small but compell...  more »

  • While they do have a cool Stagecoach, the museum is generally terrible. It's poorly staffed and the staff is poorly trained. There is a little information about Wells Fargo, but really not that much. It's so tiny and poorly put together that I I can only fathom that it is a tax shelter for Wells.
  • That was a fun, spur-of-the-moment visit. Walk by it every day, over lunch today I stopped in. Loads of history, fun relics...their phones and telegraph systems are wired up and work...the lady at the desk was fun to chat with for a bit. I will stop in again on a lunch hour when Ihave more time...there was more to read and learn.
  • Fun place to vise if you want to see some old school banking from the horse and carriage Era. This place has tons of history about Wells Fargo and the bank in general. If you are wondering around downtown this is a must see place!
  • I've brought my son here a couple times, it's a nice little museum. I'd drop it to 4 stars for only being open M-F (which makes it hard to take my kids there) but those are normal finance hours. They pack a nice amount of stuff into a small space, and it does a good job of even keeping my 6 year old interested. For a museum that doesn't cost anything to visit, I can't really complain. It's even on the skyway level for extra easy in-and-out.
  • A very informative history of banking in the Northwest. Zack is a very knowledgeable guide in this worthwhile museum.
