  • This was one of the more enjoyable history museums I have been too. It is located in a 19th century hotel that had 50 rooms so it must of been quite a site in the late 1800's. Each room has a differen...  more »

  • Very nice museum. Entire family enjoyed it. Self paced and very authentic. Over 30+ rooms to see and walk into. The staff was very nice and helpful. Great way to learn and have fun. Highly recommend.
  • I spent an hour and a half here. There is so much history packed into this old hotel and saloon. I could have spent longer. You can take photos if you want. Every room has a theme or collection. There's a recreation of judge Roy beans saloon/courthouse on the grounds and places to have a picnic if you want .
  • A large museum with extensive exhibits detailing everything about the West, but particularly focusing on Pecos history (e.g. Pecos fire fighters, cowboys, teachers, statesmen, etc.) The setting - a three-story historic hotel - is as interesting as the artifacts inside. The exhibits are dated and showing their age (literally, with peeling paper and dust). However, if you can look aside from that there is enough here to spend 4-5 hours reading everything. Instead, skip the exhibits that don't interest you so there is more time for the stuff that does. $5/adult entrance fee.
  • The staff were great. The museum was very nice. A lot of local lore was on display, but the saloon and the outside exhibits were very cool to see.
  • Wonderful collection of old west memorabilia. In the past year we have visited over 100 museum and this is by far the best small local one. We spent 3 delightful hours and could have spent more.
