  • Beautiful facility all around. Depend on it taking you a couple of hours inside and probably nearly that long outside. The guides within the museum are very helpful and enthusiastic about their jobs. Take the walk and check out the outside monuments as well. You won’t be disappointed. And don’t miss Chesty!
  • Visited with my Family, however they were closed because of water shortage. We met a lovely sheriff with 35 years of service. We went and try entry on the 6th of August and what a good time we had! Kinds and the whole family had a great time. Entry is free and good are good priced. If you are in the area please visit this, you will not regret it.
