  • The guide, Mike, was very interesting and made the past come alive. They had an astounding variety of antiquities. It was very well laid out. Most of the buildings were climate controlled. We appreciated the staff and got to meet the founder,a very interesting archiologist. Would definitely recommend.
  • Super awesome place! I thought this old west town display might be boring but it actually turned out to be a great adventure. Everyone was awesome during the tour and wow the nostalgia of it all! Take a trip here. You'll thank me! :)
  • Nice museum and knowledgeable tour guide. Was tickled to learn the owner grew up in Nebraska.
  • This place is awesome! The staff is very knowledgeable, and painstaking care has been taken to set up vignettes of life with the artifacts that were found. The tour takes about 2 hrs, but is worth every minute for the j fo you learn. The entrance fee is very reasonable. The buildings are original, or replicas of originals...we really enjoyed our visit of the museum. My boys still talk about it.
  • Every detail is perfectly displayed and presented with stories and history. This is a great place to tour and well worth your time. The owner, Richard Fike, autographed his book for me! Our tour guide was Mike who shared in detail, the history of every room and building. Just don't miss it!
