Everyone needs to see this. It is amazing to see the collection of items here. Many were donated by private citizens, thank goodness people didn't throw this stuff away. Plan to stay a minimum of 1 hour. Make sure the kids play "what's wrong with...More

Great museum with something for everyone. Allow yourself several hours and don't forget to ride the carousel in the back! Jesse James home is also on there. Loved the displays and the wonderful history displayed.

If you like to read and examine historic items, then allow yourself plenty of time in this museum. It was quite large and we didn't see everything in the 2 hours we were there. Very cool!

For Mother's Day my family took me here. I didn't even know about it since I mainly wanted to visit the Jesse James Museum. My daughter loved the antique carousel which we rode...not sure how many times. I believe it was $5 for 4 rides,...More

Some of the stuff was very interesting to look at. Some of the other stuff was, well..... probably better for younger families. I'm an older guy that can pretty much bypass some of that stuff. For $6 go there and have a good time.

One of the best museums I've ever been. So much to see and do. Plus a great treasure hunt for the kids. Wish I had more time to spend here!
