Lovely, quaint museum with some fantastic old American artefacts. Perfect for a traveling Brit to see what ‘old America’ was like. Some great Indian pieces and really cool ‘cowboy’ and gun slinging stuff. The building itself has the old county jail with preserved historic graffiti,...More

Interesting historic building with quite a few local history exhibits. We found the old jail cells particularly fascinating. Used up until the 1970's, they sport some artistic jailhouse art and graffiti from past residents :)

The jail was quite interesting and the museum nice. Good leg stretch reminiscent of slower times. Lots of unexpected items

Stopped here on the way to the Petrified Forest. They have a couple of nice displays and the person behind the desk was knowledgeable. We only spent 30 minutes. If it is on the way then it is definitely worth a stop.

What a neat place. I find it interesting to discover history. I enjoyed my visit. They have lots of history to learn from. The jail cells are interesting but I wouldn't want to be a resident. The staff ours also very helpful.
