This is a hidden gem in Pecos and so many miss this wonderful collection of western and historical history from this area. Three floors so be prepared to do stair climbing.

This museum is full of old west relics and stories. Verfy interestiing information about Pecos, it's background, and stories of past cattleman, cotton farmers, and lawmen. A must see if you visit Pecos.
