Nice little museum. Free. They have a jar for donations, but no pressure. The lady that staffed it was very nice to chat with. You are free to browse on your own.

It was closed but we had a quick walk around outside anyways. Nicely kept grounds, had a peek thru the windows, looked very interesting. I'd say pop in if yer passing by.

Having served on a museum board for nearly a decade, I know what it takes to operate a facility like this. It isn't easy. The little community museum at Kit Carson, CO is a nice place to stretch the legs and take in an hour's...More
