A must stop. It's a bit of a mess, with lots of "stuff" seemingly haphazardly laying around, nothing has moved or updated in probably decades, most is a bit dusty ... all of which just adds to the experience. Given the history and events that...More

I didn't take the tour bc I was sick of paying for everything in the dang town! I mean EVERYWHERE charges. But the nice lady in the front gave us a history lesson in the front of the building.

This exhibit is full of scary but interesting things of the old west. Original rooms and furnishings. In the theatre you can see mannequins placed in the balconies and when you return to that room later, they have moved!!

Depending on your level of interest towards wild west history, you can spend here anything from 0,5 hour to 2 hours. Don't leave this place without checking the premises at behind the first room. Costs you 10 dollars but is definitely worth seeing. If anywhere,...More

Visited with my sister and her best friend who was visiting from out of town, on a Monday. We took the self guided tour for $10 each. It was not busy and much history was provided by the guides before we took our self-guided tour,...More

$10.00 per person. They have a ghost tour at night, but didn't do that.
