Nice museum, lots of frontier displays and western stuff. If you're from Texas or somewhere with a lot of western culture, you will have seen much of the stuff. Best part is in the back, a big display of carriages. It's a stop on the trolley tour. Free.

We were at Frontier Days on opening day last year (July 2015). My big-city kids looked like they had landed on the moon. Everything was eye-catching and new. The kids wanted to collect all the swag the vendors were doling out. They bought (good) cowboy hats and had them steamed/shaped. They wandered the "frontier town" shops and Native American village,... More

This museum is educational and good for a short and quick sight in the historic wild west, we've been there during the Frontier Days and it's worse a look.
