“learn the truth of the old west gunslinger”

Who hasn't heard the legend of Billy The Kid? There are great tales of gunfights and outlaw heroics that carry on through history. You've heard the stories, now learn the truth about Billy the Kid, at the best privately owned museum in the southwest: The Billy The Kid Museum in Fort Sumner, New Mexico! At the Billy the Kid Museum, history comes to life! The usual list of dates and places is replaced with actual artifacts of the Wild West. History is about people; who they were, how they lived, and in some cases, how they died. The best-known figure is Billy the Kid. We have his rifle, chaps and spurs, the original Wanted poster, and even locks of his hair. Was he really as bad as the stories would lead you to believe? You can decide that for yourself after you've seen our display. Our other displays include the military cavalry sword of John Chisum, more than 150 firearms of varying ages, and antique automobiles ranging from 1941 fire trucks, Model Ts, and Model As to 1956 classic cars. You CAN enjoy history! It's all waiting for you at the Billy the Kid Museum in Fort Sumner, New Mexico!

This will take awhile to get thru if you like reading about all the stuff here. Most of it's about Billy but they also have a lot of that period's artifacts. Really neat! Ladies, don't leave your husbands or you'll be sitting on the front bench waiting for them to get past the old cars. :)
