The Rex Allen Museum is located in one of Willcox's oldest commercial buildings.

The front of the Museum has been restored to resemble the original saloon storefront.

  • What a lovely cowboy museum. I enjoyed it a lot. And the $2 cost is very reasonable.
  • It's little small but nice
  • What a fun little place to visit and the gunfight on Saturdays was a hoot.
  • The Rex Allen Museum is a wonderful time travel trip into the great era of crooning cowboys dressed in oh so fancy clothes with sequins everywhere and such bright colors. The pictures and memorabilia show a man with a 5 star history. To see the people with whom he was friends, and who supported the museum is very very impressive. However if you do not know the era you will be under-impressed and wonder what all the hubbub is about. As I was with people who had listened to Rex on the radio in their childhood, and seen his movies as youngsters, it was eye opening. For the western enthusiast this is a huge nugget of information and memories. So worth the two dollar admission fee.
  • Didn't know that i knew the man... his voice was everywhere in my youth! Interesting museum and glad we made the stop.
