  • Really enjoyed this museum! Lots of cool stuff to look at, especially liked the old houses built by various folks years ago. Some built by the government for military folks, some by mineral companies for employees.....old print shops, old chapel from Vegas, really cool things. You should give it a try!!
  • This museum is just the ticket for nostalgia buffs. The ancient exhibits are a bit lame but my favorites are the homes that have been saved for exhibit. You walk through a real neighborhood of real homes that have been moved to the open-air museum and enter a recreation of the past. The homes have vintage furnishings, appliances, rugs, and decorations from many eras. There even is an adorable travel trailer. For railroad enthusiasts there is a railroad depot with vintage luggage, a telegraph office, and several railroad cars to stroll through. I see that they have added a small church that looks gorgeous but have not seen that yet. Very nice diversion for both residents and tourists.
