The place is advertized to have several buildings and exhibits of pioneer life. There were also suppose to be gunfights. I went to the museum on Friday morning September the 8th. expecting to see docents demonstrating.demonstrating how the pioneers lived. There were no docents just...More

So, this Living History Museum is not the best I have been to, but worth seeing. The interesting collection of old buildings, the mining equipment, some of the houses, etc, are all worth seeing. However, the place is tired and in much need of an...More
