  • Amazing sights to see around the area in an around town. They had the original Yellowstone school bus out front. Some of the first snow mobiles and snow plows. Tells you all about the first settling travelers and how the development of snow mobiles first started here. Very neat historical auto mobiles and a nice chuck of history on the town I would recommend for people who like to get a feel for the history here. Around 14 us dollars.
  • Very small museum. Very cheap as well. Only 5 dollars to get in. You can come and go all day too. They do have several movies that are super informative. Should probably only rate with three stars, but I'm a history buff and love museums.
