Dumas was a bit out of our way, but this museum is well worth the trip! Friendly and knowledgeable staff! Tons of thoughtfully-displayed historical items. Hours of FREE entertainment.

The staff were very helpful and had wonderful stories to tell about their exhibits. I loved the variety of things they had to observe, and it was very enjoyable for my 2 year old nephew. I highly recommend visiting if you haven't already.

It seemed to be closed down but the outdoor exhibit was still available and the jet plane and APC were very interesting as well as all the farm implements.
