Has a lot of history. It even has a real boat inside so kids and adults can experience it first hand. It is not expensive to go to.

This museum has a lot of interesting historical items - for $5 it is worth a visit. There are some photographs of Le Claire from back in the early 1900's that were very interesting.

We spent the day in Le Claire so this was on our list to see. Lots to see in a small space. Staff was super helpfull too. I am a museum buff and was impressed with all they had on display.

Glad we stopped with the grand kids but not the best stop. Had much to look at but the Buffalo Bill items were mixed in and seemed mixed up. The boat was great. The helpers were terrific. Hope this place continues.

This museum has a full size steam boat INSIDE! They are in the process of restoring it. The museum has memorabilia from Buffalo Bills life and a history of the town of Le Claire with a lot of displays about other famous residents.
