So you're not all that busy and in need of something to do. Why not walk through a little wild west looking town? There's plenty of old stuff to see and learn about. The history of the big oil boom here is brought to life through film, antiques, photographs, and reconstructed buildings of the time period. There's plenty of photo taking opportunities, such as in the saloon, blacksmith shop, and barber shop.
I am not certain if the woman in the gift shop is a docent, but she was very pleasant and helpful.
Sometimes there are old west style events held on the grounds with reinactments. Most days, however, it is simply a self-guided tour. We paid $5.00/adult for tickets.
There are a few picnic tables outside of the museum in case you happen to bring a lunch.
It is directly off the highway and located across from the Lamar University.
