  • Was great... much larger than it once was and considerably more informative... My grandson was quite impressed and the sherif/ gun fight in the street was awesome... He had a great time, couldn't wait to tell the kids in school about what he saw... The souvenir shop needs t-shirts, etc for young kids... They had none...
  • This is a great historic place to take your family. We have been coming here for years and always learn something new. Be sure to listen to the stories that the actors have to tell about different businesses and how things are done.
