“Not a lot to see”
Reviewed February 14, 2013

This is a pretty small museum with not a lot to see. I was expecting more in the way of Buffalo Bills history but there was just some odds and ends of local history. One redeeming quality is the barge for the kids walk around.

“Not too great but they are trying and very reasonable cost”
Reviewed January 18, 2013

Make sure you have cash or a check as they don't take a debit/credit card. The displays are a bit, how shall I say it, lacking maintenance. The price was cheap, however, and the steamboat museum has definite promise.

“Disappointing”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

There was nothing of interest here. Just not enough substance to make it worth the admission price. But the little town of LeClaire is worth visiting. Good restuarants and interesting shopping.

“Buffalo Bill and more”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

Nice place - we dropped in by accident. A lot of local history, including Buffalo Bill and other "famous" peaple from the town.
The steamboat museum is very interesting and educational (for a european).
