Very informative and nice displays. Pretty neat to see original site of bank that they tried to rob! Would definitely recommend stopping here and was only $5 per adult for admission!
I've wanted to visit this event several years and finally went this one. Im a history person so this definitely appealed to me. I'm glad to say I wasn't disappointed. The Historical Society has a lot of interesting things on display regarding the attempted bank robbery and other items about the town/area that are also interesting. The reenactments are also... 更多
I LOVED this museum! We got there just as a tour was starting and the tour guide was informative and engaged and retold the story as if he were there. There were maps and photos to orient you to the historic tale of the attempted bank robbery. The bank stands as it did back in the 1800's and you get... 更多

Since we did it before the bank robbery reenactment, we knew what it looked like inside...which is essentially the same as it was on the day the actual attempted robbery occurred.

Although there are a couple of... 更多
Enjoyed the 2 gentlemen's account of the Jesse James bank robbery. Saw the bank as it was on that infamous day, even stood on the original hardwood floors. I love history so it was fascinating to learn about this terrible group of bank robbers. Glad I did it!
This is not your typical "any town" Historical Society Museum; this museum's focus is on its connection to Jesse James & the Younger Brothers and the Great Northfield Bank Robbery. They show you a short movie depicting the background of the robbery and a re-enactment and from there you walk around a few rooms and read about the robbery. They... 更多
We had our son's family here from Texas and they wanted to see the last bank that the James Gang robbed. We were not disappointed! This was set up to depict the way the bank was on that fateful day. The admission price was very reasonable. Not much for a child to see but more than enough for an adult... 更多
