  • 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! :)
  • Very interesting! I look forward to going back. 4 stars because our group was too large to see smaller rooms.
  • Nice museum and knowledgeable tour guide. Was tickled to learn the owner grew up in Nebraska.
  • Lots more than old building. Interesting and fun.
