50 rooms, three stories, and more items in the surrounding area. The thing that I enjoyed most was the animated bartender. I wish that his sound could've been a little louder. But it still was interesting to think of what made him tick. While in the bar look around for the bullet holes & signs about shootings. As an earlier... 更多
Although it wasn't on our planned itinerary, when passing through the little town of Pecos, TX how could we not stop when we saw the sign for "West of the Pecos Museum?" The museum is housed in an old hotel and has loads of interesting artifacts. In the attached saloon, a bartender/automaton will regale you with stories of the good... 更多
This was one of the more enjoyable history museums I have been too. It is located in a 19th century hotel that had 50 rooms so it must of been quite a site in the late 1800's. Each room has a different historical theme and it was very interesting. Shows where there were gunfights in the saloon and where men... 更多
A large museum with extensive exhibits detailing everything about the West, but particularly focusing on Pecos history (e.g. Pecos fire fighters, cowboys, teachers, statesmen, etc.) The setting - a three-story historic hotel - is as interesting as the artifacts inside. The exhibits are dated and showing their age (literally, with peeling paper and dust). However, if you can look aside... 更多
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
The West of the Pecos Museum is actually the historic Orient Hotel. As the story goes, this hotel was once the premier hotel of West Texas. With its early 19th century looks, I'm sure she was a beauty in her day. Not only does it have original memorabilia and artifacts from an era long ago, but it connects to the... 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!
