The Hole-in-the-Wall Saloon, the favorite watering hole of American legends Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, is one of the main attractions of this museum. We also have a Yellowstone stage, one-room schoolhouse, and a replica of Old-town Thermopolis.

Very reasonable entry fees, huge two floors to explore, some of the best native American artifacts and art I have seen anywhere. Many historic displays, rooms that evoke the history of this area.

There are many small town museums out here in the west. This is one of the best. If you have any extra time after visiting the springs It really is worth it.

These folks were so great and friendly. They even took us around a bit and showed us some exhibits, especially the bar from the Hole in the Wall. I would go back.
