I enjoyed looking through the museum and watching video reels of times gone by. This area appears in so many movies from the past and present. It was time well spent and made me a bit nostalgic for some of those old westerns.

This is a nice little museum about the founder of this area. Lots of photos of movies that were done around this area. Unique items to the time and location. Neat to see. No cost unless you want to make a donation.

interesting to see the old trading post and a bit about the the people who established it. Don't expect much from the human attendant. Plenty to see, nice photos, good video. Well staged.

My husband and I were camping at Goulding's and had the chance to visit this trading post. It is worth the visit if you are in the area. Lots of beautiful Indian artifacts.

It's on the same property and right next to the Gouldings Lodge. It's a small museum but well worth the time to stop. There is no fee to get in but donations are welcome. Bummer about the tour busses. I was there off season... More
