This is a great museum to spend time in. Lots of history about cowboys, outlaws, guns and everything western. Well mantained. Everywhere you look there is something interesting to see. Three floors worth seeing and for just a donation? It was great. Will be back.
Such a great and fun place to visit. All my kids love visiting. Great people and exhibits are well taken care of.
