This museum is phenomenal! A must see. So much history and the exhibits were so informative and well taken care of. If you're a fan of old Western Heritage you must stop by this Museum it'll be worth the time.
We were just passing through Craig when we came upon this wonderful museum. So many interesting exhibits in a gorgeous historic building. Doesn't take long to get through it all...definitely worth the time!
