Kind of dated. A bit hokey, almost silly. We brought a visiting family of relatives. Nobody raved. Lacks people and alive feeling. You walk about on your own. Automated displays.

This was not at all what was expected. It was small and contained only one large building behind the main store front and one smaller home for viewing as the museum. Artifacts were interesting but it lacked the usual feel off a museum and did...More

Awesome time at the museum. They created a very authentic old town. Stage coaches from back in the day, even one you could get into for photo's. They had an old phone from the party line days with a women gossiping which was so funny....More

This is exactly the kind of touristy attraction I adore - all goofy, harmless fun with mannequins. The gift shop had everything from gun lover signs to light- up Jesus key chains. I may have purchased both. Two main areas of Old West museum relics,...More
