On top of being not a very well curated museum, it’s a small four room house. Even if you do slowly read every picture caption (“this is an example of the type of gun used to kill Jesse James!”) you’d be done in under fifteen...More

This is now located behind the Patee House museum. It is the home where Jesse James was shot and killed. There is a lot of memorabilia from his life and it is an interesting visit. You can see it in about 20 minutes.

Small house full of historical value. Takes about 15 minuets to go through but well worth the visit. Don’t miss the love seat in the living room.

Stop at a gas station before you go here. If you drive your family all the way from KC and need to "go" when you get out of the car, you are SOL. RIDICULOUS!

This is a reminder of life during the late 1800's where railroad robberies were a major issue and criminals rule the west. It is interesting to learn about America's most famous criminal.

I think the Chamber of Commerce may have had pamphlets. The Patee Museum had a lot of brochures and I am sure they had one on this one.
