The outdoor horses statues or bronzes are beautiful. Be sure not to miss them. The museum itself is kind of a mismash of some western themes. The saddle and horse equipment displays are excellent on the top level. There are also several original Remington and Russell paintings-drawings. The lower level has interesting wagons including a Canastoga. It would be better... 更多

I didn't think there was much as far as the history of the American West, but rather just guns and carriages... I also thought it was interesting how the fate of the native Americans was left out.
We stumbled on this by accident. It was truly the best collections of old buggies & carriages my husband and I have found. We are true "old West" fans & this museum is a real jewel...both inside and out.
