Everything you've ever wanted to know about barbed wire, and then some. Really, it is interesting. Then we got a tour of the history museum on site. And found a geocache there.
We found out about this museum watching Billy Connolly's Route 66 show. It is a bit tricky to find but well worth it. We thought it was funny you will see barbed wire models and all kinds of wire from lots of different countries. The museum is run by volunteers who are very helpful. There is a route 66 museum... 更多
Why was barbed wire invented? When? By whom? This museum has over 1000 different types of antique barbed wire and fencing tools. Information on collecting antique barbed wire and membership in the various state clubs. You won't regret your visit!

It's not just barbed wire---it's everything connected to it right down to the medicine they used to doctor animals cut by barbed wire. They have barbed wire from the Berlin Wall. Everything is well displayed and explained. We found it fascinating.

Barbed wire may not seem like a thing of interest but the museum is laid out well and there is something for everyone. My husband really liked the tool sections. There is also a Route 66 section. Don't miss it if you are driving... 更多
