Great, great experience. For a donation you see history of a close knit, little known part of the country. Do not miss the tractors and airplanes....or covered wagons. The wall size picture of the Dust Bowl over Perryton will blow your mind!

Need a place to stretch your legs? This is it. Lots of room to roam indoors and out. Military history, local history, toys, glass tractors, flags, reptiles and more. Something for everyone.

This is a museum in a town of less than 10,000 people, with a history of only about 100 years, and for that venue this is a surprisingly pleasant diversion. It is a lot larger than it looks from the street. You may be tempted...More
