Informative. Great special fx. Quick
Stephen_K, May 2022
It's a nice museum. Beautiful entry exhibit and we really loved the thunderstorm inside. Very informative but....a bit short for full museum price. All in all a nice quick stop in travel routine.

Museum is a bit cheeses...

Museum is a bit cheeses but gave brief history of area. Amazing building. Wonderful spot to picnic lunch and walk along the river.
A “must do” to experience the history of the west enabled by the human spirit of exploration and hope.

I always wondered “why over the interstate”? Now I know. What a great experience that ties history together from the wagon trail, train, roadway, interstate and the Internet to the capabilities of our human spirit. Well done.
Excellent

Way better than I thought it was going to be.

It was a really cool experience. There’s even a sluice box at the end to use for treasure bags you purchase at the gift shop. My only negative is there is no bathroom on the upper floors so to use the restroom you have to travel through the museum.
Response from Host, Nov 2021
Hello! Thank you for the great review! We are so glad you had a great time with us! The sluice has been a very popular addition! We hope to see you again soon!

Great experience, once again. It's been more than 7 years since we were here and the archway has been improved in access, audio and overall exhibit. Love the trail and park across the roadway too.
