Stepping into this museum is like travelling back into time. The collection of artifacts is eclectic, to say the least. A baby shark skeleton? All sorts of odd and old things that aren't associated with the Governor, his life, or times. Odd -- but interesting! The best part is the part of the wall that was scooped out by Kit Carson's wife Josefa, and other women, in an effort to escape death. Governor Bent talked to the Native Americans who were rebelling, buying time for the escape, but at the cost of his life. (For a different point of view on these events, go to the Taos Pueblo.)
