The artifacts and tour were great; well worth the money. Good way for our teenagers to get a glimpse of life when the west was being settle. We spent nearly 3 hours, but the extra time was our request. Younger kids may want faster tour.

Loved this museum! Feels like you're stepping back into the 1800's. There is a lot to do and see- would recommend at least 2 hours. Can't wait to visit this museum again one day!
