They have an impressive petrified log, model T Ford cars txt you can sit in and pretend to drive. They have "mock up rooms" with antiques, etc. He enjoyed pushing buttons and listening to the different narratives from the... More

The old west street is inside an old railroad building. Its fun to peer into the storefronts BUT they are recreated and you don't get the feel that these are real ghost town relics.

A look at how people lived and worked hard without modern gadgets. Man/Woman power is what they had to survive. It was fascinating and we loved all the artifacts, stagecoach, pharmacy, general store, saloon, firehouse. Great way to spend some time!!!

This museum is little but is totally worth the $7.50 it totally gives you an insight of what the Wild West use to be. They have lots of things that you can actually touch so that is always great for when you have kids or in my case a dad that likes to touch everything!

We expected to find some sort of Ghost story place, haunted tales etc. but when we arrived we realized our mistake...."Ahhh, Ghost town, now I see." But hey, we were there, we sought it out, why not. We paid the fee and went in. There honestly was a lot to see, and neat things if you take your time and... More

We've roamed around a number old western towns and ghost towns through the years, but were very much surprised at how many authentic items this museum has. The collection is fantastic and creatively displayed inside of a building. When visiting, you need to really look carefully at everything and take a few moments to look at the video. We visited...

This was a lot smaller of a museum than what I had envisioned. It was also kinda expensive too. But, once we got in there it was unique and the kids enjoyed looking around. Not scary.

Entire exhibit is inside of an historic train depot. It is a reconstruction of an actual ghost town but some of the rooms were very crowded with artifacts that it was hard to take it all in. Gift shop is massive and fairly priced.
