Couldn't be in St. Joseph and not go and see this, but it was all over quite quickly, and didn't really impress me that much. Much more impressed by adjacent Patee House Museum.

The primary reason for St. Joseph being a stop on our cross country trip was that Jesse James died here. I am a western lore buff. This museum did not disappoint! It is adjacent to the Patee House Museum though it has a separate entrance fee. Both places are a must see!

The museum is really a step back in time and very informative It has a lot of information you haven't heard before about Jesse James.

Kind of sick when you think about it that people are making money off of one man's murder. This really isn't that big a deal, it isn't at the original site, just do a drive by & you won't miss a thing.

It's Jesse James folks, you gotta check out Jesse James stuff.
It's his real house as it was on the day he was killed. It's been moved from the original site but its still pretty much the same. Low cost entry fee and several artifacts. It's placed right adjacent to the Patee house museum which is also a very cool joint to visit. Tons of history and kings to read and learn about. There are plenty of nice places to stay and eat at in St Joseph as well. Worth your time and the money.
