Fun and informative pioneer museum now house in the Long X Trading Post Visitors Center. DON'T MISS the lower level with a lot of helpful information on the local oil industry. Talk to the personnel there to learn about the impact on the area of the booms. Take a look at real life, without personal bias from afar.

The museum is quite nice. Well done. Be sure to read the story about the outlaw that got hung by city residents who took the law into their own hands. They have the rope displayed!

Excellent walk back through time in the history of Mackenzie County. Wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the artifact displayed; especially those on the 3rd floor. Staff was extremely helpful in explaining what we shouldn't miss on our visit.

If you are new to the area, they have lots of information to help you navigate the town. The museum was very interesting to my 11 and 13 year olds due to the memorabilia involved. They have a small gift shop area that included a few neat items as well. One side of the business is a liquor store but,... More

The cashier was very helpful and knowledgable about their inventory when helping me select a specific bottle of wine. They have a decent selection of wine and alcohol.

The place is really nice. It's attached to a liquor store which has really late hours, usually 9pm. Their selection's not the best if you're a scotch drinker, but I was talking to a local and he says they never even carried microbrews before the oil boom. It's ultra-nice for the area.

This is one of the more interesting institutions of hospitality on the northern plains--a combination visitor information center, historical museum, and package liquor store! It works; the bottle store actually generates traffic for the historical museum, and oilfield workers new to the area often are interested in learning about it. Be sure to check out the (somewhat grisly) exhibit devoted... More
