This is a very interactive experience that is great for all ages. I liked the personal stories that were told rather than the corporate ones.

It's not that big but take the time to really look at the artifacts. It was a different time back then carrying gold and valuables across the country. Hard to imagine it today. A lot of authentic items. Great history.

It was fun to read about the bank's history. Very well done small museum in a beautiful bank. We bought some cute ornaments.

Kids (& kids at heart) will probably enjoy this small museum in the Wells Fargo building off the skyway system. Have historical artifacts that revolve around the stagecoach, the telegraph and the old west. Interactive activities will interest children (& others with shorter attention spans!)

I used to work nearby and it's such a great little museum to visit over lunch or when you have a short amount of time. Really unique and worth the time.
