What folks are sayin’

Unexpected surprise!

“We’ve roamed around a number old western towns and ghost towns through the years, but were very much surprised at how many authentic items this museum has. The collection is fantastic and creatively displayed inside of a building…You could almost imagine yourself in a John Wayne movie.”

Fun time

“Turned back the clock to another era. Great time with kids and seeing all the antiques on display. Panning for gold was a hit with all the kids from 12 to 70!!”
