Once I calmed down from my ordeal ascending the arch, I was able to walk thru this museum. As part of the National Park Service, the museum is FREE and very very interesting. Taxidermied buffalo, longhorn steer, horse, and other indigenous animals were fascinating to the children, and several animatronic figures brought historical figures to life. The museum is rather comprehensive, and is very well done.

If you are a NPS Passport holder - the stamping location is inside the gift shop.
