“Interesting--If You Remember Red Ryder”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

This is a small, very specialized museum. There is some interesting old artwork and Western artifacts. Call ahead to be sure it is open.

“Great way to learn some Old West history”
Reviewed 30 October 2013

If you know Red Ryder and Little Beaver, you will love this small museum for all its art and history relating to this comic strip. But it is just as interesting for people who just have an interest in the Old West. The paintings and other collectibles on display are a joy. The docents are well informed and enthusiastic. If you are lucky, you may run into Fred Harman and hear him tell some of his stories of his remarkable pioneer family.

“a neighborhood gem”
Reviewed 25 September 2013

Don't let the outside fool you. The museum has most of Mr. Harman's paintings. They show a CD with a narrative about many of the paintings which I found to be most informative.
