More that we could see in several hours but absolutely worth the drive!! If you want to see up close what life was like back in the older days in the area you have to go see it! Extremely laid back there and do what you want on your time there but hopefully you can chat with the owners and learn some extra stuff (only if you ask) I feel like young kids would have fun for the 1st hour and possibly get restless at least our 3 boys are like that! Must do, great day!

The museum is extraordinary! A slice of americana from many different perspectives, lovingly assembled by Jack and Belva Lawson. It's so easy to spend hours there exploring the mini-town they created. It's impeccably maintained, and it wraps so many things together - history, nostalgia, local culture, humor, the unexpected, a beautiful setting, and a welcoming atmosphere. Be sure to see the rock area, the Silver City historical section, the "mine", and of course, the emu. The museum itself is completely unique and wonderful, but the high point of our visit was talking with the Lawsons - such a warm and inspiring couple.

Ya have to see it to believe it! My wife & I visited the museum on a Wednesday of October 16 2019 after calling ahead of time to schedule a visit during the off season. The Lawson's were there to greet us and start the tour in which I thought would last approximately an hour but I was wrong because there is so much to see. It is amazing work & devotion they have put into displaying all the artifacts & attractions that are a reminder of our early history and culture. Bring your camera though because there are so many things of different interest for everyone. Some exhibits are inside while others are outside or roof covered so a flash may come in handy for indoors and a sunny day would be a plus for nice pics outside. The mocked up gas station/garage was my favorite as old cars, gas pumps and vintage signs are my thing and as for my wife it was the old Native American pieces and wall art. It was little over two hours for us to see everything and I would definitely recommend it for anyone who wants to visit the Emu-Z-um and put it as an addition to there future bucket list.

We called on a Tue when they are not normally open but Belva & Jack were able to graciously accommodate us. We were there 2 1/2 hours & it was not nearly enough time but we got to see everything in a fast forward way. You can see the pride & love they have put into the displays. I kept saying WOW when entering each building. This is truly a Gem for our Gem state. We have visited a lot of museums & this outshines them all!
