Miniature village must have taken years to assemble and create with story telling audios. Wonderful private collection of the old west and fascinating historical artifacts. Very personable owners who took time to provide detailed explanations.

This museum is a person's life long collection and dioramas of the west. Very interesting and unique collection of artifacts. Plan on spending at least an hour viewing all of the displays. Admission is free, donations only collected

Excellent display of miniature history, admission was "free" but there is a strongly encouraged donation of 5$ per adult so it isn't really free.

This was a fabulous place to visit. It was near to the west side of town, right on the main highway, easy enough to find, although it is in the back of a souvenier store. This man has spent 50 years collecting artifacts and they...More

This display is in the back room of a small gift shop. It is free to go to, you can make a donation. They have a laminated, two-sided page that explains what you're looking at in the diorama and the history. The diorama is large,...More
