Wow, what a pleasant surprise this visit was! Very interesting yet not exhausting exhibitions that are made with love and care. Great moment at the Stagecoach, bar exhibit and Billy the Kids actual rifle. The restaurant serves simple but good food. A must visit!

Not sure about tours. Suggest using Uber or renting a car...Costco has great rates for members. Might want to check Burbank area hotels since Disney and Warner studios in area.
