“Abrupt Greeting”

Jesse James Home Museum
Attraction details
Reviewed 14 August 2017 via mobile

Upon entrance, we were greeted gruffly with " You guys almost waited too late." It was only 3:40 pm but even with closing at 4, we had plenty of time to see what little was there. Located on the grounds of the Patee House museum it was an ok tour. A few interesting artifacts.

Went to this museum after the Patee House Museum. Right behind the Patee House Myseum. It is a very small house with just 4 rooms. Not really worth the admission fee. Unless you are a big Jesse James fan, then it might be worth it.

See the home of Jesse James. Bullet hole in the wall. Lots of history to go along with. I highly recommend you check out this local museum.

House is only 4 rooms. It doesn't take a long time to go thru but packed with lots of items, pictures and stories. We learned so much about the James boys and the events leading up to Jesse's death. Worth the stop!

Advertised opening hours for this museum were at nine, however when we arrived at nine we found other people also waiting to get in. We went next-door to the carousel Museum and the man called to find out when they would be open. It turns out they were actually opening at 9:30. So we left and came back later. The museum is very small but has interesting artifacts. It reminded us of the Lizzie Borden house on a much smaller scale. It contains casting of his skull fragments and teeth. It has no video but has a bit of narration to explain how he was killed. It would've been nice to have a short video or more explanation as to what exactly happened. And it was frustrating to arrive at the advertised time both online and on the door but find out that they were not opening until 30 minutes later.
