We had stopped by the museum many years ago when it wasn't blocked off by the fence. We found the museum so very well organized this visit. It was well worth the fees. Very interesting items to view. The ice cream shop had excellent desserts.

Go back in time as you wander through the many replica buildings filled with period memorabilia. There are four of the original buildings to tour also. You can get a cold drink at the saloon to drink there or take it outside while you watch...More

This museum had a lot of good information about the city and the people who lived there, and everyone (even the young kidos) stayed interested. I would recommend coming back to the saloon at the end and grabbing a cold root beer.
