This museum consists of outside and inside attractions. The train exhibit was very detailed. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable. No fee charged to enter the museum. Some “Wild West” history along with pictures of actors who were in movies filmed in the area.

We were out exploring the area and stopped at the museum, after walking around it gave us a feeling of what it was like back in the day. The chapel was interesting and the fact Hollywood used the building for films.

We really enjoyed our stop to this location. It was neat to read about all of the Hollywood celebrities who came together to build this place with their own money. The pictures were really cool.
