  • Every year I used to take my fifth grade classes from the school where I taught. They always enjoyed visiting this museum as it fit so well into our Social Studies curriculum. The docents were amazing. On another trip, I even took my grandson to it. He loved the jail and the chance to ride a horse statue in a movie. I retired six years ago, but would recommend teachers experiencing this with their students.
  • SUCH a fun field trip! My kids loved loved loved it! I even had a great time. The artifacts, the history, and the wonderful David who showed my class around really made the experience one we will never forget! On top of everything, all of my kids have a hearing loss. David also uses hearing technology. Whaaaaat a great role model opportunity for my students. Thank you!
