We loved this museum. They have so many original buildings and they are all decorated with actual pieces from the old days. They close at 11am in the summer months due to the heat. We would have loved to get there a lot earlier so...More

This place is not fancy but fun and best to go when it is cooler in the day. I always take out of town guests there.

I really like this place. I've been there a few times. Once, they had an old west show with gunslingers. You get a good glimpse of what it was like to live in an Old West town.

I chaperoned a school field trip to this museum. The sprawling grounds made it easy to imagine how early settlers actually lived (blacksmith, general store, actual school from the Mogollon Rim disassembled and rebuilt, etc.). Kids especially liked the town square duel re-enactments.

This little pioneer home was a way to connect with the original settlers. It shows just how few creature comforts were available. It was worth the trip to visit.
