Great, great experience. For a donation you see history of a close knit, little known part of the country. Do not miss the tractors and airplanes....or covered wagons. The wall size picture of the Dust Bowl over Perryton will blow your mind!

Thank you for coming out and visiting us. We are so pleased that you and your grandchildren enjoyed yourselves. Next time you come out be sure to ask about our activity books. They include scavenger hunts, puzzles and games that coordinate with our exhibits.

This is a museum in a town of less than 10,000 people, with a history of only about 100 years, and for that venue this is a surprisingly pleasant diversion. It is a lot larger than it looks from the street. You may be tempted...More
