Small but interesting little museum located in Kit Carson's home. Some interesting artifacts and photos. Its a quicky so go by and see it.

This house museum is small, but interesting. The original main house comprised three rooms. There is an addition that was made by the family at a later date and a room that was converted into the modern gift shop. The tour starts with a History Chanel video on the early life of Kit Carson (20 min). There are lots of interesting artifacts from his life and related bits around the time. The museum is worth the $6 entry fee and the hour you spend inside, particularly if you are interested in Western history.

A chance to visit the memorabilia of a Western scout. And education of what was happening as the West was opened up for the wagon trains.

We really enjoyed this museum. It's very small, but I found the history of Kit Carson to be fascinating.

I heard the name before but the movie tells us his life story. You can also see artifacts and old photos and his old home. This is great for anyone interested in the old west.
