It was awesome to see the house where Jesse James lived and where he was shot. They show where the bullet hole in the wall was. The gift shop was good also.

Located next to the Pattee House Museum (make sure you go there too!), this museum is very small a only about 10 people at a time can be inside. Entering thru the back door is where you will pay ($4 adults/$2 kiddos) prior to touring the other three rooms. You will see the hole in the wall where Jesse James was shot while straightening a picture. Lots of pictures and historical information as well as documentation from the exhumation of Jesse's body. Family history and relics are housed and showcased nicely. You'll only need about 30 minutes to go thru, but it is worth it for all of the great stuff you will see.

The whole group learned many facts about Jesse James and his "gang" that we didn't know prior to attendance.

well done and informative collection of the most notorious bank robber of all, not to missed when you have visited the Patee House.

This is the home of Jesse James and you can even see the bullet hole of from where he was killed. Interesting history of one of America's famous outlaws. Right next to the Patee House Museum and not far away from the Pony Express Museum.
