  • Great shop. Fun displays. Lots of souvenirs. Nice selection of post cards and shot glasses. If you like this type of thing, don’t miss this one.  more »
  • Is not a strong although the Palisades on the outside make it seem like this; in fact it is a store where you can find several things cute and interesting. All western-style, from fashion to the copy of the "circus" that Bill Cody wore around the States and also in Europe, the jewels of Indian handicrafts. In addition to these interesting articles you can also find Christmas decorations, a real surprise and a treat for fans like me. Convenient location (for me in particular because near my hotel) is located a few meters from the Veteran's Memorial Highway and Railroad Museum and (if it were to pass nearby and wanted to make a leap in this store it takes very few minutes from the exit). Western! Interesting!

  • There are animal statues and a wagon to pose with outside for fun photos. It's free to go in.... We found some nice Nebraska shirts for reasonable prices. Excellent post card selection. It's right off...  more »

  • This is a really neat place for people of all ages. There's lots of cool things to see and a bunch of really neat gifts. FREE ADMISSION! I believe I saw they hold little outside festivals of some sort occasionally as well.
  • Cool miniature of the Buffalo Bill show and piles of souvenirs. They even had a collection of photo opportunities for the family.
  • Found some really cool stuff here. Friendly and helpful employees. The moving track was also really awesome. So much history! Loved it!
  • Great break on a long drive! My 5yo loved exploring the back yard.
  • Love this place. It's a full on classic piece of roadside Americana. It's kitsch, has a wide variety of reasonably priced and unique gifts for kids, specializes in western items, throws in some history & oddities and caps it off with a fantastic miniature wild west display (free to view) that is worth the stop alone. From the two-headed calf and the world's oldest flattened souvenir penny to the Wild Bill items and the Medicine Man coin op fortune teller, this is a great stop to make.
