  • My kids were tired and acted up a lot. I wish I had more time. There is sooo much history and information. Its self guided. I like that. I could spend hours looking at each piece of history! Cheap too!
  • This museum features tons of information while still being the perfect place for families with children of all ages. An 1800's locomotive sits right in the center, with the vintage carousel (that you can ride for less than $2!), streets showcasing period appropriate business fronts, a grand ball room and so much more!! Give yourself plenty of time to see this museum, as there are 2 floors with so many fantastic items that you won't want to miss. Strollers are not allowed inside, though children of all ages are welcome. Prices for Patee are: Adults- $6, Seniors (60+)- $5, Students (6-17)- $4 and children under 5 are free (with paid admission) The Jesse James home, where Jesse was shot and killed, is also on the property. This is a separate museum and charges separate admission. Prices for Jesse James Home are: Adults- $4, Seniors (60+)- $3, Students (6-17)- $2, and children 5 and under are free (with paid admission) **SHOW YOUR AARP MEMBER CARD FOR JAMES HOME TOUR DISCOUNT**
  • Hours listed as daily 9-4pm but found door locked at 3:30pm.. could not get in. Then went to Jesse James house and same story.. closed early. Apparently a small town thing where workers leave immediately at 4pm and can't be bothered to stay later.
  • Hrs say 9-4 staff says she will be here at 9:30 it's 9:40 and door is still locked! Don't waste your time. Staff Not friendly at all!!
  • Wonderful experience. Well worth the time. Exceeded expectations.
