  • Amazing City....... My favorite museum in the city. You really feel like you are in an old western town. Really educational and personal all in one. The period of the old west. So many people showed up in costume, and they were impressive sights. Great day with the family.
  • This is a wonderful place to take the whole family. I like how they offer the Christmas entertainment to the regular things they have going on during the day. This is also a great place for schools to take field trips and learn about our history.
  • I've only been here once but I loved it! Maybe I should wait to see some more of the events before rating but.... My family and I had a lot of fun. Be careful of the goat though. He stuck his head out of the gate and repeatedly hit my two year old daughter in her ear, jaw, and face. Thank God he didn't get her eye. Poor thing, she was just trying to feed him some grass :'( Other than that it was great. It's much larger than I expected, you can go into almost all the buildings, and the gun show was entertaining. Not to mention we got in free on Sunday! 😄
  • We had foreign guests and thought Cowtown would be fun. It was okay. Half of Main Street was closed because of construction. The little shoot out show on main street was lame and embarrassing. The historical housing was interesting but then again, half of the houses were closed.
  • What a fun place! Surprisingly cheap compared to a theme park and exceptionally large, too. Really enjoyed Halloween festivities here.
