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'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.

Nicely done re-creation of an old time "ghost town". Individual buildings and displays setup to look like a complete town's main street. You could go inside many of the store fronts to see more items appropriate to the building, i.e. Jail, saloon, red-light district, etc. Also a few displays of vehicles such as stage coaches and wagons.
