We visited here during a family trip. It was full of interesting tidbits of history, and was also a small gift store, so you are paying to shop as well as learn. It was minimal though, and worth the donation to see such interesting stuff.

We were looking for an overview of the stockyards and a place with air conditioning where we didn't have to pay much. We wandered into this museum through the wrong door, so we got to experience this lovely historical building, complete with a live decked-out...More
