This little, free, step back in time is a real eye opener for anyone who has even the smallest question or interest in barbed wire. There are fences, cowboys, wars, tools, pieces of art, medicines....and even a Route 66 room. We thought it would take...More

My husband wanted to go here, and I did not. I was glad we did though. The museum has not only the various wires throughout history, but everything associated with the wire such as implements and wire makers. The museum is free making it even...More

Very interesting free museum with all different kinds of barbed wire. There's also some Burma Shave signs from the Route 66 days & a reproduction of a diner from the town's heyday. Well worth the time & expense (hee hee).

Wasn't sure what to expect when we came here. Have to say it was one of the best museums we saw on Route 66. Very helpful (volunteer) staff, where m=nothing was too much trouible for them. I just loved this museum
