Its a cool little building with a nice gift shop right up the stairs/elevator. You do have to pay to go and see the museum which is on the smaller side. But of your looking for a quick thing to get a history lesson in then this is the place. The gift shop has some really nice older type toys... More

The room with artifacts or examples of this earlier time is small. They do have a good movie to watch that teaches some things that I didn't learn in school. The guides were very knowledgable and had lots of information to share about the history of this part of the country. They offer a military discount, so just ask.

Cute little museum along with a gift shop. Frontier park where the museum is located is a great place to sit and enjoy the views. The Lewis and Clark statue with their dog is pretty . It is also close to several stores for shopping and several dinning choices. The staff at the museum are very friendly and polite.

You are charged to get in. I guess that keeps out the riff raff. Its interesting but I think if they had something thats more virtual or visual - takes you back in time would be more helpful. Was there only once. As an adult, I did not find it help my attention. Daniel Boone Home - much more interesting.......go... More

My 13 year old and I went to this on a cold rainy day and enjoyed it a lot. The gentleman at this desk gave her a scavenger hunt and we worked to find all of the answers. You have to be willing to read or else you will walk around and be done quickly. My daughter loves history and... More

Stopped in with three young kids. They enjoyed the scavenger hunt, but that was about it. Not a lot to see. The workers were very nice and helpful. It's worth a stop but not a place I want to go to very often.
