The quality varies greatly depending on what is in the special exhibit space.

Great morning seeing everything western. Had a wonderful, limited time, exhibit of baskets and basket making. Very interesting and informative about the west being settled. Loved all the western movie clips and exhibits. The only negative I have is that there wasn't enough western music to enjoy. There was several groups of school children visiting and the museum handled them great. Not a problem at all for the other visitors. Bring your AAA card for a 10% discount.
