Relive the racy days of the Old West when miners dug for gold and cowboys rode the range at this reconstructed ghost town and museum.

We enjoyed taking a stroll in the past. Very interesting displays as well as interactive activities. The price is reasonable and worth the visit.

Cute little place, very easy to go by. You can get your own Wanted Poster made and there's a lot more to do/see than you would think.

A very unique experience in the old wild west. There's a lot more to see than I originally imagined. There's a movie to watch and games to play and we even got wanted posters made up. Fun time!

We spent 45 minutes here. Could have been done in 30. For creative story telling and explaining everything to a 5 year old, an hour would be good. Good photo opportunities.

Pros: Movie was informative and interesting Rooms are neat with original items Cons: Not many hands-on activities for children Not a lot of information on the items All the music players, pianos, etc. cost money Panning was closed in mid 50 degree weather

Don’t go, it’s a true tourist trap! Much better experiences at the Pioneer Museum in town. Try the gold mining museum at the North AFA exit.

The old buildings and historic items are all stored within a building. It takes about 45 minutes to see it well but it really isn't that big. What they have is very nice. I was glad to have gone.

They only do the panning in the summer (May-September) so it will not be available in April.
