  • I really liked it. It's huge. We walked around and looked at the exhibits and the pictures on the wall. There are several displays. They are very well done. I highly recommend going. We stayed several hours in the museum.
  • Wow! The outdoor reenactment is very well done. The cowboy gallery and rodeo exhibit were so fascinating. Love the different multimedia making learning and browsing so entertaining. Lots of interesting American Indian history that occupied all over US, not just local tribes. We rushed through in 2 hours but could easily spend another 2.
