Very good display of towns history. Stories of various families that were part of the towns beginning. On the bottom floor is largest display of horse drawn carriages that we have ever seen. Would recommend this museum to anyone visiting Deadwood.

Got to take a guided tour, on a day when they are normally closed as part of a bus trip to Deadwood SD. Great way to see the history of the area and how and why things changed. If you get a chance when in the area I say it is a must see!
