This is a very neat museum to visit for an hour. This museum used to a be a hotel years and years ago. A very local museum with lost of fascinating items from around Pecos definitely a must stop place in Pecos.
So glad I stopped to see the Judge Roy Bean house. Nice park in front perfect if traveling with a dog. The museum looked interesting, but not pet friendly and too hot to leave dog in car so I bypassed going inside. There are several signs that detail some of the history if you cannot go in. It's a nice... 更多

This museum has it all! The staff are knowledgable and friendly. Exhibits range from bullet holes in the original saloon to community celebrations. The history of the building itself is worth the stop inside. It's a great place for children too!

Several items of interest, primarily the old saloon and history of the Pecos rodeo tradition. In the old saloon you can see bullet holes from a gunfight that took place there and see where the deceased from the aforementioned gunfight "punched their ticket". The majority of the museum is dedicated to local town history and shows life in Pecos beginning... 更多
