Stop at a gas station before you go here. If you drive your family all the way from KC and need to "go" when you get out of the car, you are SOL. RIDICULOUS!

This is a reminder of life during the late 1800's where railroad robberies were a major issue and criminals rule the west. It is interesting to learn about America's most famous criminal.

I was surprised at how small the Jesse James home was. It was interesting to see the displayed items of the time period.

Granted there isn't much to see here but there is enough to attract a true Jesse James fan. He didn't stick around in one place for long and anything he touched is valuable. For a museum that relies on gifts and donations there are limited...More

Little house next to the Patee House Museum. Few rooms where he lived a short time with his family and where he was shot so you can see the bullet whole in the wall. That's it. Not worth paying entry fee.

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
