The admission is cheap, less than $5 I believe. Mostly the exhibits are of the history of the area. This used to be a courthouse/jail, so the jail cells and a courtroom have been restored and made available. If you are interested in old west rifles, then be sure to stop by for a visit.

The gun collection may be the best part of the collections. Staff were most helpful. Those jail cells were a place to avoid!

Full disclosure: I love small, local museums...and I liked this museum. And it is FREE> I learned a lot about barbed wire...and never knew that barbed wire had a decided effect on the West.

Showcases the past in a well-done manner. They have preserved the old courtroom and offices as well as sheriff's office and jail.

If you like guns or barbed wire, this is definitely the museum for you. Step inside the old jail cell, or sit in the quiet courtroom upstairs and imagine frontier justice under law rather than under a hanging tree...

It as a little more money than I think it was worth...although I'm not that much of a museum person. There were some interesting things to see, but once through was plenty for me.
