Amazing collection of American history from the western part of the US. We spent 3 hrs looking around and on the tour and kids were hooked the whole time. We have to bring family and friends back for another visit. Every exhibit was so well done and the details/items are all first class. You won’t find a better collection anywhere!

10/5 stars recommend!! This was such an informative and amazing collection/museum. You learn so much and it’s truly amazing to see what the owner has collected over the years. Our guide, really great older chap with the name of Mike maybe?, was amazing and made the stories come alive! My friend and I were at Black Canyon and just finished a pretty good hike. We were passing and flipped a U Turn and have no regrets! To everyone saying negative about the Covid rules...they followed them! Also don’t go outside if you’re that afraid. Recommend!!

What an amazing display of artifacts! Ranging from children's toys to ladies notions to antique cameras, radios, tools and guns - the breadth of the collection is impressive. If you are interested in medical history, botanicals, patent medicines, old bottles, historical physicians' and dentists' equipment, make sure to see the recreated pharmacy and medical offices. Everywhere you look there are real treasures that bring these topics to life. I also enjoyed the reconstructed log cabins, blacksmith shop, carriage works, saloon and hotel that seemed to come right out of the 1800s. Richard and the docents are friendly and fascinating with their stories and information to compliment the displays. I'm so glad to have discovered this historical treasure and can't wait to visit again - it seemed as though my three hours there only scratched the surface!

My friend and I were traveling from California to Indiana, stopping at as many national parks as possible along the way. We happened by the Museum of the Mountain West while driving through and were absolutely blown away by the collection Mr.Fike has acquired over the years. It felt as though we stepped back in time. Every piece in the museum has a story. Mr.Fike and his staff are extremely friendly and proud of the things they have on display. Thank you for preserving this history and for sharing it with the world. This is a must do if you’re in the area. We were there for almost three hours and could have easily stayed for many more, so much to see. Thank you Mr.Fike and your amazing staff and volunteers for an amazing experience!
