Stopped on a cross country trip. Glad we did. Excellent stop to walk through exhibit and learn about history of the west. Really nice displays and realistic life size people with period costumes. The self guided audio tour was fantastic. We would def stop again as we didn’t walk through anybody the outside areas due to cold and wind. Highly recommend.

Very well done! The scenes depicting the history has an amazing amount of detail. Even in the first room how many times the weather had changed. Thanks for the hands on history lesson. It was not busy when we were there if it was I would recommend headphones. It would be fun if they had a scavenger hunt for younger kids. We wished we could have walked around outside it looks beautiful. It was just to windy cold.
