This is some cool history to see if you are coming through town and just want to seeing something fast. It does cost money to see. The place is super super old it’s almost scary to walk on the floor it feels like you will...More

I was surprised at how small the Jesse James home was. It was interesting to see the displayed items of the time period.

Granted there isn't much to see here but there is enough to attract a true Jesse James fan. He didn't stick around in one place for long and anything he touched is valuable. For a museum that relies on gifts and donations there are limited...More

Little house next to the Patee House Museum. Few rooms where he lived a short time with his family and where he was shot so you can see the bullet whole in the wall. That's it. Not worth paying entry fee.

Hey if you see the Patee House Museum - you have to see Jesse James Museum - it is just out the backdoor of the Patee Museum! I liked this place, only because I am a Midwest person and Jesse James is in our culture!...More

Being such a small place, the Jesse James museum, just a couple of rooms, was very crowded. It wasn't overpriced, but I think they could have done with a separate exhibition area to give additional information about Jesse James and his life and times.

The house is small but it was interesting to see considering its history. Admission is charged. It's a quick addition to see this when visiting the museum next to it. Would be nice to include both in the admission price.

I went here with my wife and mother in law today. Kind of strange that they charge admission as it's just a small house. I'd take others to see it but I'd wait outside while they visit

I think the Chamber of Commerce may have had pamphlets. The Patee Museum had a lot of brochures and I am sure they had one on this one.
