City museums are often overlooked by tourists but are often the best to get a real "feel" for a place, to understand the history & development of the city you are visiting.

Having quite a number of these little museums in the west (have also been to the one in Phoenix and Old Town San Diego) helps the bank tremendously.
The Wells Fargo History Museum has an excellent exhibit of old west memorabilia, stage coaches, mining, etc.
