A history museum that lives. There is nothing more interesting and engaging than traveling back in time, and at the Old Cowtown Museum that is what you do. Once you enter the museum grounds you are transported back to the end of the 19th century, the era of the pioneers. The setting, the people, the things they do all shows how the early settlers lived and breathed around the 1870s. It is something marvelous.

Touring the museum is self-guided but that is okay, because almost all the interpreters can provide insight and information, you just have to ask! :)
