We stopped by Sunday 12/30/2018. The museum amd depot were closed even though the website advertices it was to be open today. I suggest calling before planning a viait.

We love stopping at all the old small towns on our road trips. On our way through we stopped here. Was a nice break from the car and see some antique farm equipment. We enjoyed driving through the town more than the museum.

Vivid stories of families on the high plains with authentic collections professionally displayed. Enthusiastic staff brought it to life for us with tales of joy and struggle for families who settled here. Remarkable. Don't miss this.

You would never believe such a great museum exists in a town this small! Extremely well done. Excellent collection of arrowheads. The kids will love the train display. If you need a stretch break for the family, this is perfect. Park, museum, and great displays....More

It's free to walk around outside. Inside, I think it's free, too, but not sure. A donation is appreciated.
