  • A fascinating place really. Lot's of interesting stuff about the west, even for the kids. I am not American, I am from the mining areas of South Wales UK, and only knew about Western US from what I saw on TV. This museum brought it all to life, we were in there a long time as there was so many interesting things to see and read about. You should go!
  • It was a very interesting museum. Very nicely laid out with history of Grand Junction and the area. A good stop for a couple of hours.
