These odd little town museums amuse me, why they exist I'm not sure but usually offer an interesting 30 min cool environment and a break from driving, thus one is two rooms of a bizarre collection if history.

Better fill up here as the prices are almost half of that from Death Valley. Back to the museum, We were able to browse about ten minutes... More
