Way too expensive to take the family to, the price to in the museum is awful. You can walk around outside for free though so that is nice.

We enjoyed our visit to this small but interesting museum. There was an older man (docent) who spent a lot of time telling us about the museum and especially about the carriages. We really liked his presentation. It made the place feel very friendly.

The history is good. Good old gun collection. It is now called the Hubbard Museum of the American West. Nice Native American exhibit. Good education for kids.

The Hubbard Museum is much more than horses. One section of Native American artifacts is one of a kind. Early American modes of travel including horse drawn antique wagons and carriages. A section of the museum has western clothes to dress up in for photo shoot. Great fun for the whole family.

This is a small museum that really held my interest. I never knew I would be so interested in the different wagons, but they were beautiful. Lots of interesting artifacts, guns, horses, and other American West memorabilia. Very impressive.
