This museum is a great place to see frontier history at its best. This place is perfect for spending 2-3 hours exploring the exhibits.

When we stopped by on April 5th we learned that the gas station had been sold and that the new owners were not keeping the exhibit. The doors were locked and they were prepping to take everything out.

This is a small museum inside of a gas station. It takes about 5 minutes to walk through it. Its neat, but not really a big deal. My son liked it when he was little, but now he says oh wow and then walks by.

I didn't ask any questions; didn't want to know why! At a Mobile station just off I-90 a taxidermy bonanza of wildlife both exotic and common. Lions, an elephant, boar, prairie dog and many, many other examples. 15 minutes - tops!
