We came to North Platte to mainly stay for a weekend before heading off towards other sites, and wanted to stop at this place just to see what they had. They have a lot of Native American jewelry, which is very interesting and somewhat expensive,...More

We thank you for your 4 star review!! Many people have told us we have the best selection of Native American jewelry anywhere...so many stones to choose from and all handmade on Sterling Silver! Glad you enjoyed our other goodies, too! Come again sometime!

The place had attractions inside and was worth a visit. They had all kinds of souvenirs and neat toys for the kids. Bring a camera and take some photos for a scrapbook.

The store is chock full of tourist kitsch, some of it pretty humorous. However, the back right corner has some great period artifacts - some claimed to be one of the last few known to be in existence. That alone is worth stopping in.

A must stop on your way west. Fun souvenirs for the kids, old fashioned candy, and a two headed calf. Stop out back to take some silly pics and enjoy the fort in all of its roadside America tourist-trappy goodness

Worth a stop. You're sure to see something interesting. Didn't get to see the wild west show in action. Did get to see the 2 headed calf. Plenty of souvineer options here. Plenty of history books in the back.

It's basically a visitors stop to get kitschy souvenirs but it's kind of like a museum too. They have an amazing automaton recreation of Wild Bill's traveling circus. It runs every 30 minutes (free). They have a neat selection of children's books and history books...More
