Worth the very cheap entry to see what stockyards was all about before it became what it is today. Good mix of information. And in a fantastic building full of history itself.

If you love history, then you’ll love this spot. Definitely, a step back in time that reminds you how far we’ve come. You have to be patient and have some time to read the information. It is really an old time museum.
