Hey if you see the Patee House Museum - you have to see Jesse James Museum - it is just out the backdoor of the Patee Museum! I liked this place, only because I am a Midwest person and Jesse James is in our culture!...More

Being such a small place, the Jesse James museum, just a couple of rooms, was very crowded. It wasn't overpriced, but I think they could have done with a separate exhibition area to give additional information about Jesse James and his life and times.

The house is small but it was interesting to see considering its history. Admission is charged. It's a quick addition to see this when visiting the museum next to it. Would be nice to include both in the admission price.

I went here with my wife and mother in law today. Kind of strange that they charge admission as it's just a small house. I'd take others to see it but I'd wait outside while they visit

I remember stopping here as a child, so when we were passing thru I wanted to stop again. It is a quick stop, probably only takes 20mins to go thru the small house, but it was a fun little stop with some history and artifacts....More

We found this place with help from Siri. Minimal parking and I saw to access to the house itself for wheel chairs. (I may have over looked). Admission was a bit pricey for what it was so we never went in but was interesting to...More

Upon entrance, we were greeted gruffly with " You guys almost waited too late." It was only 3:40 pm but even with closing at 4, we had plenty of time to see what little was there. Located on the grounds of the Patee House museum...More

Went to this museum after the Patee House Museum. Right behind the Patee House Myseum. It is a very small house with just 4 rooms. Not really worth the admission fee. Unless you are a big Jesse James fan, then it might be worth it.

See the home of Jesse James. Bullet hole in the wall. Lots of history to go along with. I highly recommend you check out this local museum.

House is only 4 rooms. It doesn't take a long time to go thru but packed with lots of items, pictures and stories. We learned so much about the James boys and the events leading up to Jesse's death. Worth the stop!
