We enjoyed both parts of this local museum. One is dedicated to the natives of the region with beautiful examples of old and new quillwork and beading. The exhibit explaining how a rams horn is turned into a bow was remarkable. The other is about the pioneers who came to the region and the growth of the tourism industry. Well... More

This is a nice little two part museum- the trapping and Native American section is in one building and the ranchers/local history and naturalist part is in another building close by- both have gift shops. The gentlemen in both buildings were friendly and helpful. The cost is reasonable- $5 for adults, $4 for students, and under 12 free.

Neat little place, as others have said only $5.00. Worth it if you have some extra time. Easy to walk to from center of town, only about two blocks. We enjoyed our time inside, had a nice gift shop as well.

Even though this is a very small museum it is very interesting. There are 2 sites: one for the pioneers and the other 2 blocks away for the Native Americans . Both have a lot of authentic items arranged in an interesting and informative way. The Native American one has a lot of animals and birds which are beautiful. The... More

The museum didn't cost much, $5.00 for adults. It is not very big and contains a few interesting items and facts but if you take other tours you can get your fill of the history. This was ok.

This museum was a bit small, $5 entry fee, it is run privately. There were some interesting Indian artifacts and elements of wagon train life that were interesting . It's small size could make it good for younger children with a short attention span.

If one wants to see the old West and how it was settled and the effects of the traders to settlers, visit these two locations. Outstanding exhibits and information on the quality of life for both the Native Americans and the settlers nonetheless the traders. Several hours can be spent reviewing the spirit of the West and especially the people... More

Of course it's not the Smithsonian, previous reviewer, and the little town of Jackson isn't Washington, D.C. We love this homespun museum with its portrayal of life in this area back in the days of trappers and settlers and mountain men and women. Especially fun is the room listing all the movies made in this area and the set locations.... More

We had time to kill in Jackson and were tired of going into all the retail shops. This museum was open and had a reasonable admission charge so we gave it a go. Exhibits are focused on homesteading, and early settlers. Takes less than 1/2 hour to see everything. Nothing stands out particularly although their bookstore has an excellent selection... More
