I went here with my dad. He was showing me how they used to farm back in the 40s and 50s. I'm glad he was there to show me and gave me a realization that farming is way easier now. I'm so happy he was with. When we were leaving we looms at this one door and walked through it and there was a huge steam boat that we looked around on. It was really neat to see. I'd go back for the memories.
Cool and unique gadgets, you can explore a real paddleboat (indoors but unheated), interesting signs. Fun little play room for kids, who get in for $1 or less. One of the best things I've seen in this area.
Another small quaint little hometown museum with large detailed exhibits, we didn’t realize his “Cody” Wyoming connection. what an interesting and amazing life story... There is also the old steamer Lonestar on exhibit as well as an old Chris Craft runabout to check out. Well worth the small admission fee (visited June 2018)
Great musuem. Has a real old paddle boat inside that you can walk around in and on. Lots of neat old items from the area. We really liked it and was very reasonable price to get in to. Worth the stop. Something for everyone in there
Interesting and fun museum. Buffalo Bill and much more. Family/kid friendly (had a treasure hunt/explore type game for kids). Enjoyed our visit. It was a great find.
