Really enjoyed this museum and spent much longer there than anticipated. Added bonus of a cafe with a free jukebox. Lots to see and do. Friendly staff.

Stopped as a break on the long drive to Grand Canyon. Interesting little place with mock businesses and storefronts with antique props inside. Lots of neat history. Worth a stop! Spent about 30-40 minutes here
