We love stopping at all the old small towns on our road trips. On our way through we stopped here. Was a nice break from the car and see some antique farm equipment. We enjoyed driving through the town more than the museum.

Vivid stories of families on the high plains with authentic collections professionally displayed. Enthusiastic staff brought it to life for us with tales of joy and struggle for families who settled here. Remarkable. Don't miss this.

You would never believe such a great museum exists in a town this small! Extremely well done. Excellent collection of arrowheads. The kids will love the train display. If you need a stretch break for the family, this is perfect. Park, museum, and great displays....More

We were staying at a motel down the road, and walked our dogs around the Limon City Hall, and past this little museum. We were walking after dark, so the museum was obviously closed. We enjoyed looking at the old trucks and other antiques on...More

It's free to walk around outside. Inside, I think it's free, too, but not sure. A donation is appreciated.
