We found this place with help from Siri. Minimal parking and I saw to access to the house itself for wheel chairs. (I may have over looked). Admission was a bit pricey for what it was so we never went in but was interesting to...More

Upon entrance, we were greeted gruffly with " You guys almost waited too late." It was only 3:40 pm but even with closing at 4, we had plenty of time to see what little was there. Located on the grounds of the Patee House museum...More

Went to this museum after the Patee House Museum. Right behind the Patee House Myseum. It is a very small house with just 4 rooms. Not really worth the admission fee. Unless you are a big Jesse James fan, then it might be worth it.

See the home of Jesse James. Bullet hole in the wall. Lots of history to go along with. I highly recommend you check out this local museum.

House is only 4 rooms. It doesn't take a long time to go thru but packed with lots of items, pictures and stories. We learned so much about the James boys and the events leading up to Jesse's death. Worth the stop!

It's really neat to go inside this home. If you are going to the Pattee house museum then you need to go here also. I love history so if you love history diffently try this.

The tour took less than 10 minutes and really wasn't all that (at least for me). It's 3 and a half rooms and there's the bullet hole in the wall from the shot that killed him. There's some historical info, etc., but I wouldn't pay...More

First of all, the house was moved there from its original location. Second, none of the furnishings are from the James family. Third, space is very tight, as it's a tiny house. If you have several families going through, it's a tight squeeze. There is...More

I love history and learning, so I was pleased to find that I learned something about JJ that I didn't know. I read a prophecy in the Patee House, next door, in the ballroom about how he thought he would be killed. That made it...More
