Exhibits at the museum reflect the museum’s extensive collections and include: early silent films, post war films, “eastern,” science fiction such as Tremors and Iron Man and the many cowboy heroes who worked locally including John Wayne, Gene Autry and Roy Rogers.
All of this was made possible by a generous gift from Beverly and Jim Rogers of Intermountain West Communications Company. Many items from Mr. Rogers’s personal collection are on display in the museum including the cars from Trail to San Antone and High Sierra. Other film treasures on exhibit include hats and guns of many western stars, costumes from The Shootist, and Errol Flynn’s coat from Kim. Also on exhibit are several silver saddles from Mr. Rogers, including Bolin and Jeff Flowers. The Museum is always looking for gifts of western movies artifacts and posters as well as items available for purchase.

I have driven by this museum about 100 times ND always dreamed of stopping one day. Well that day happened and we were quite surprised about how fun it was inside. There is a $5 donation to see. But it is cool and the bathrooms are clean. I loved seeing all of the movie memorabilia.
Was so great to see all the old props from the old movies. Great museum and very friendly staff.
