The museum contains two fine collections of western memorabilia, the lifelong collections of Don Cappa and Desert John Blomquist. Cappa's collections include many types of guns used in the Old West, including the .41 caliber double-action Colt Lightning pistol made famous by Billy the Kid, and the Hammond Bulldog named after Doc Holliday's mistress and guardian angel, Big Nose Kate. In the back of the museum, you'll find Desert John's Saloon, with a bar that dates back to the 1800's and hundreds of antique liquor bottles dating back to the Civil War.

Open Memorial Day through Labor Day.
