“Cowboy fans may like this”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

This museum is pretty good for a small town. It is large, with a lot to see, yet there are many things that an average visitor may not be interested in. There are several collections that look like they were given to this museum. Maybe SOMEONE is interested in the many varieties of fencing.... I did enjoy the scenes that have an audio component. They were pretty well done, although the upkeep is OK. The whole museum smells as well. We were there for 1/2 hour, and that was good for us. Cowboys and farmers may like to stay longer.

“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

There are so many historic guns and artifacts. It is an amazing glimpse into the history of this area. It is well worth the time spent to stop here and see every thing.

“lots of western history”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012

The Range Rider's Museum is chock full of artifacts and real pieces of western history. The main museum building is full of various items used on the range and in pioneer life: beautiful saddles, chaps, medical supplies, cookware, quilts, as well as some oddities (ie an ashtray made from a bullhorn). There are items from the town's early days, entire walls full of cowboy photographs, a display of lady's hatwear, some Charlie Russell paintings as well as photographs from the early days of rodeo. There are several large displays that model the town railroad switchyard, a ranch, and a fort; these have an audio commentary that you can listen to. And that is just the first building! Other buildings include a rifle/pistol building, and a building full of wagons, buggies, and old cars. Pretty nice place to visit - lots to see, and the volunteers are very nice.

a gem for homestead and western history. Great variety of items in well done displays. A marvelous photo gallery of past residents many of whom are notable pioneers.
