Great experience

I really liked the museum as it has many things in respect of the history of Coffeyville. The most interesting part was the movie about the robbery!

Enjoyed the museum. So much different than other museums that we have visited.Strictly devoted to the defenders and the Daltons. Highly recommend if you like the old west

Good even from the outside

We had already gotten the lowdown on how the the Dalton Boys’ crime spree was foiled by the townsfolk of Coffeyville, but the museum wasn’t open on Labor Day Sunday. Still, the outside itself was cool and lots of related stuff in town to see (Dalton’s graves, for example)

Fun afternoon of history!

Who knew this little gem was hidden away in Coffeyville, Kansas? My husband had grown up in Bartlesville, OK and had always heard about the bungled attempt of the Dalton gang to rob two banks in one day. While we were staying at Osage Hills State Park, we decided to journey to Coffeyville. The museum is nicely done with a lot of history about Coffeyville itself, but the Dalton room with the History Channel short video and artifacts was our favorite. The original bank sits directly across the museum (great photo op!) and the jail and Death Alley (where a big part of the shoot-put happened) is directly next to it. The man who welcomed us was knowledgeable and friendly. A good way to spend an hour or so!

I loved the Murals and the walking tour at Coffeyville about the Dalton Gang. It’s almost like a movie set.

Dalton Defenders Museum in Coffeyville Kansas
Nov 2019 • Friends
I remember playing an arcade video arcade game as a kid where you had a shootout with the Dalton Gang, so it was pretty cool to visit Coffeyville.

Fantastic museum, right next to the historic Condon & Co Bank. The museum has some incredible exhibits covering Coffeyville’s history and the pioneers, but the best part is the ‘Dalton Room’

The Dalton Room covers the Dalton Gang Raid of October 5th 1892 during which four out of the five gang members were killed and four townspeople were killed. The room houses original guns, bullet belts, hats, money bags, saddles etc used by the Daltons during the raid, plus numerous photographs and news clippings from the period.

Excellent museum!

Museum in transition

What they had there was excellent; it was just in the process of moving to a new location. Had a very informative video about the event. They have the actual weapons used by Bob Dalton in the attempted robbery. We hope to go back to see the entire display once they have completed the move.

Just left this museum and not too much there. Didn't charge us the $6 fee. Movie about the robbery was good but not much else.
