This is an interesting place to visit. I was expecting more Buffalo Bill artifacts. It did have a lot of various historical items that were fun to view. Pretty chilly looking at the steam boat. Didn’t look at that very long.

Stopped in with my husband and my 84 year old father. We were there about an hour - so much to see. The volunteers at the front desk are very nice and can answer any questions that you have. Definitely worth a stop.

Variety of types of artifacts in good condition, pleadingly arranged. Informative without overwhelming amounts of data. Worth browsing through.

A really great small-town museum! Displays a lot of interesting things and gives you a good feel for the past - not only about Buffalo Bill but also for Le Claire and its history in general. Very good if you visit with kids since they...More

We were told that we would only need an hour to go round this museum but there is far too much to see to do it justice in that time. The Buffalo Bill section is fascinating. There is a Ford Model T fire engine (still...More
