Not a large museum but full of historic information and a great display of cowboy paintings. Some good free photo opportunities and the museum is free. Well worth 40 of your time.

Small but good collection of the Old West. Self guided tour includes sllideshows of Old West stories and photo albums as well. Some authentic artifacts to match the stories of how pioneers and cowboys lived.
