Very well kept station. Many interesting displays. Docents lead tours. Many interesting 'make work' project displays from depression era.

For fans of the West this is well worth the stop. The Pony Express was a great episode of the Old West. Some very nice exhibits here and it is well worth a visit. Staff very helpful and friendly.
