This museum had a bit of everything relating to the west. From Native American history to several cases of historic guns to horses and carriages and mining displays this museum touched on everything that made the west. For our family one of the favorite sections was the hands on children's area. Kids could play dress up, climb on a wagon, sit on a full sized horse display and just have fun. It was a good place to stop. The giant horse statues on the grounds were fun too. We had a good time.

Besides the interesting photos I mentioned in the title, they have a good collection of old vehicles- wagons, buggies and coaches. They had a nice little gallery of western- themed paintings and sculpture when we were there that we enjoyed seeing- a lot of it was modern-style.

Loved the history on the horses that helped shape the American West outside the museum! Inside, the museum takes you on a journey through time, introducing you to the different native and eventual settlers in the West, their influences, clashes and resulting current culture of today. Be sure to see the amazing Native American collection at the museum!

This museum is small, about the size of a large school gym. It had some interesting exhibits on two floors. Great interactive area where children can dress up, climb on a wagon, have a picture on a saddle, "cook" over a campfire, or play house in a cabin. Many wagons and horse-related exhibits. Some amazing pictures. Don't miss the posters about the history of toilets- they are in the hall around the downstairs bathrooms.

This small museum shared the history of the Native Americans and the Americans in the early 1900's. It did not take long to walk through but it was fun to see the different detailed pictures and carriages. The horse statues located outside are great for pictures.
