“Historic and Free”
Reviewed January 5, 2012

A wonderful place to spend an hour. Mention that you'd like a discount card for eating just down the street and save 10% on great Mexican Food.

“Modern Museum with a great story”
Reviewed January 2, 2012

The tour takes about 45 minutes and tells the interesting story of the 500 Mormoms who enlisted at the Army's request, and served our country in a variety of ways. Well done.

“Definitely worth the visit”
Reviewed December 29, 2011

Visited last night while looking for a food restaurant. Parked free in the parking lot and took the 35 minute free tour. Very well done and professional. Religion wasn't pushed and an excellent overview of early Western US history. The kids loved the interactive part of dressing up as a US soldier and the sets were impressive. To top it off the sister missionaries gave us discount coupons to two of the best Mexican restaurants in Old Town - Miguels and Reyes.

“WOW!! You got to see this place and experience the professional presentation”
Reviewed December 21, 2011

They buldozed the old building and built something amazing and fun!. Great for all ages and very impressive for a free attraction using modern technology. A great deal of thought and planning was put into the new experience. Thank You.
