We have been trying to come here for years and finally got here. Worth the stop. Lots of old west exhibits in a rebuilt town. Very well done. The carousel was closed when we stopped by. Rats!

Many buildings to walk in and around. A lot of history. Kids had fun, and so did the adults. There were some bees to watch out for, and some of the door handles were very hot. Took us about 2 hours to go through.

Plan on an hour or two to see this museum. It's a collection of buildings, mostly historic, some recreations, of the early days in Kit Carson County. I especially liked the sod house and the two story mansion. And the saloon, and the drug store....More
