  • 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 definitely a tourist stop! But kids will LOVE it! Stop in and learn a little bit about the area. Not only do they have shirts and games and candies and toys for kids they also have some authentic Native American gear, and my favorite part, the historical book selection they have about Nebraska, the West, and the history that built the area. Best selection you can find in one place. Stop in if you're just driving through!
  • Very interesting place. Reminds me of the tourist type of places I visited as a child. The outdoor area is great for kids to run around and play in. The indoors is packed with buffalo bill facts, merchandise, and trinkets. It's free to get in but there is plenty of things to buy there as well, so if you bring your kids expect to fight off the constant "can I get this" reaction to the vast amount of kid friendly merchandise. All in all, a nice little break from the road trip.
  • This was definitely a unique educational experience my kids loved it. It's also a great stop for unique souvenir kitsch and collectibles. When you first walk in you'll notice all the souvenir collectibles walk to the back that's where the educational stuff to see is at. Added bonus they're very handicap friendly and the staffs great.
  • A tourist trap, but it isn't like they're hiding it from anyone ... in fact, they play that angle very well. I was touched by the woman that made inquiries for us to see if we could see the North Platte museum, but alas we were just stopping in on our way to Mount Rushmore!!! Helpful friendly people to be certain!!!
  • It has alot of fun souvenirs and candy. Some candy took me back to my childhood. Like candy cigarettes, bag of gold gum. We stopped there to use their penny smashing machine.
