A good bit of construction going on while we were there but the history is well worth the trip and time. Looking forward to going back once the work is complete and the museum is fully expanded and functioning again. Some really great exhibits with some wonderful southwestern history on display.

I appreciate your review, although I am a bit confused as we haven't been under renovation for close to two years. Also, our collection spans beyond the southwest. We have the uniform of Vermont's only Rough Rider, a New York Light Artillery flag from the Battle of Gettysburg, the list goes on. Our collection represents the United States, and is... More

The destination I planned was to dine at Pinnacle Peak Steakhouse in Gold Dust Town.I noticed that there was this museum on the premises,so we put that on our agenda. Small admittance... More

This museum is like a treasure chest. Spoke to the curator at length about the guide on flag. I was so impressed with his knowledge, that I feel he should be snapped up by Ken Burns and make a documentary using the pieces in this museum. Unlike other museums, you can get a personal history lesson behind the artifacts. It... More

Look for Pinacle Peak or the Trail Dust Town to find this hidden gem. For a pittance of admission you will be treated to the most extensive and authentic exhibitation of the 'Horse Soldier' (including the Marines!). We were the only people in the facility, so we were treated to a one-on-one tour of the many exhibits. These people really... More

Thank you for your kind words, I truly enjoyed your visit. We at the museum felt that this was a perfect opportunity to publicly explain why we don't rely on labels to describe our collection. First, the amount of information people enjoy and absorb through listening to one of our guides far exceeds the amount of text 99% of patrons... More

My wife and I visited here one afternoon about 3 weeks ago. The young lady gave the two of us a personal tour - and with the museums founder Rae also helping with information as we went along. He was even good enough to open up one of the display cases so we could get to hold, and have our... More

I found the Museum of the Horse Soldier to be a great place to go to and see many local Indian and Military artifacts. Well worth the time to go through and see a bit of our Western era.

Didn't hear about this place, happened to stumble upon it on our way to pinnacle peak. Glad we did. The owner was extremely nice, and insightful. The artifacts were amazing. a little bit collected from different states across the country. Definitely a place to stop in on.
