The Pioneer West Museum, which highlights a diversity of West Texas exhibits, is housed on two floors of the former Reynolds Hotel in Shamrock in Wheeler County, Texas. The hotel was mostly occupied by traveling salesmen during its heyday in the 1920s and 1930s. The exhibits are spread over twenty of the former hotel rooms.
The museum focuses on the culture of the Great Plains Indians and even the National Aeronautics and Space Administration Apollo XII Moon mission in which Alan Bean, a native of Wheeler, was an astronaut. There are cowboy exhibits, pioneer weapons, a look at the nearby former United States Army base Fort Elliot as well as farm and ranch artifacts. On display are doctor and dentist offices, a general store, pioneer kitchen, schoolroom, and elegant parlor. Located at 204 North Madden Street just east of U.S. Highway 83, the museum is open weekdays from 10 a.m. to Noon and 1 to 3 p.m.
