Never got to enter the Museum because the tickets are expensive (15-$16) and neither is John Wayne to us become crazy, but is curious to see and you can visit the store prior to the Museum. The House where he was born is very close to the Museum.

  • I really enjoy the movies of John Wayne and when I got the chance to visit the museum I did. It's well laid out, easy to tour, not too expensive, and you can learn a little more than you would expect about the life times of a movie legend.

  • Memorabilia of John Wayne movies and his birthplace... Nice if you are a JW fan!
  • A great tribute to an American icon.
