Incredible little museum, so much to learn and see. Recommended for young and old. They do have a gift shop at the entrance with tons of ONE OF A KIND items to go crazy about.

Lots of interesting history to see and all for the price of a suggested donation. Worth you time. A chance to see what may have been the real outcome of Billy the Kid's life.

Some interesting artifacts and objects of military importance. Unique collection of things and arguments for the strange saga of "Brushy Bill" who lived here. The claim is that he was really Billy the Kid who escaped death in New Mexico and lived out his life...More

This museum tells the story of "Brushy Bob" who claimed to be Billy the Kid whom had faked his own death and changed his name. It has some compelling items to support this theory on display and really just leaves it up to you to...More

This museum is free and therefore must run on a very tight budget as they rely on donations. It is clearly a labour of love for those who run it and are so enthusiastic. There is a mixture of military memorabilia and Billy the Kid...More
