  • Very well laid out for the amount of history and artifacts they display. The kids loved finding arrowheads of their own, they will never forget it. The staff are wonderful. Gift shop is amazing. Aside from the history, they do great things here.
  • What a fantastic museum! I could have easily spent four hours here. The collection of native American pottery and artifacts was amazing. We learned so much and loved the gift shop selection. Kids got to dig around outside for a free arrowhead. Anyone who is a fan of the old American west will love this museum.
