Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. All of our artifacts are donated with the majority of them being from pioneer settlers and their descendants. The Native American's in the area were nomadic, mostly being from the Cheyenne and Arapaho tribes.

The museum has some great historical artifacts and information. The firearm collection as well as military artifacts was intriguing to see and learn about. The historical buildings were fun to walk through.

The museum was very interesting and we especially enjoyed walking outside and visiting each of the buildings- barbershop, general store, church, school, etc., in their original forms.

This little gem was across from the Best Western Sundowner so I decided to go and see what it was about. It is $3 to get in, which is super cheap for all you get to see; plus you get a wooden nickel!! So cool....More

This is such a beautiful musem. I have no idea how such a small town could afford to have created such a world-class historical park. American Pickers would love this place!
