We enjoyed seeing from back in the old days. They have all kinds of things to look at and see that you may never have seen.

The guides were very informative and friendly. The vendors were mostly in and...More

We had a wonderful visit and we learned a lot. The museum is interesting and has a great seek and find attraction for kids. Lots of cool stuff for out of towners to purchase souvenirs too.

Interesting history. However the exhibit is not well maintained. Also, they are only open starting on Thursdays. See picture for schedule and entrance fees. Walking tour was open and allowed for some touring.

Indian Museum, blacksmith shop, wagons/stagecoach, original pioneer buildings/log cabins, one room schoolhouse and tons of Johnson County history. Great...More
