This was a fun stop for history lovers, with houses and shops relocated and restored to be what one might find in the 1800s. The displays set up in the buildings were well laid out and seemed to be authentic. It was an easy walk to see all of the “in town” buildings, but we ran out of time, so skipped walking out to the farm homestead. I had only allotted 90 minutes for our stop here, but we easily could have used another hour, as our favorite part was talking with the docents in period dress, especially the blacksmith and the printing press attendant; they have a lot of information and stories to share. We were sad to have had to skip a couple of the other buildings with docents, as our time was short. The saloon was closed (I’m guessing it opened at noon) and we had to leave too early to see the gun fight, which was also at noon. If you’re planning a stop here, give yourself at least 2 ½ to 3 hours in order to be able to see and do everything.

We went to several museums of this type and this is the largest. The children had fun and learned a lot. They have a gun show at noon and at 2 pm.

If you're interested in history and how things were in the old west this is a very worthwhile stop. Old town is set up with stores and businesses the way they were back in the day and very informative. If you're lucky you might even get in on some movie shooting.
