Many items from Mr. Rogers’s personal collection are on display in the museum including the cars from Trail to San Antone and High Sierra. Other film treasures on exhibit include hats and guns of many western stars, costumes from The Shootist, and Errol Flynn’s coat from Kim. Also on exhibit are several silver saddles from Mr. Rogers, including Bolin and Jeff Flowers. The Museum is always looking for gifts of western movies artifacts and posters as well as items available for purchase.
