I visited the museum on a very warm day in Aztec. Greeter was very nice. Gave me a self tour packet which i followed. Fasinating history in Aztec. Interesting collections of items from locals. Enjoyed the out buildings the most! Bank, store, smithery, and others.

Visited here by chance after seeing Aztec ruins. Very friendly and helpful staff. The recreation of the pioneer village was very interesting. We spent much longer here than anticipated. Highly recommended.
