This is a small museum, actually located in an old home, but it's definitely worth your time. There's a lot of history in there, and the volunteer at the front desk was very knowledgeable.

For our family this was a 30 min to an hour stop. The kids had things to do as they had an activity sheet that they had to find things in the building. Had a few neat facts.

Go back in time. Vision the late 1800's in the west. Very worthwhile!!! If you are interested, come to the Ghost Walk in the fall to visit Doc Joliday's grave around Halloween.
