A museum doesn't have to be a stuffy building with hard-to-see relics behind glass cases. The living history museum at the American West Heritage Center is vibrant and alive. See a Shoshone Indian Village and a mountain man encampment. See the farm animals, enjoy a wagon ride. Whatever you enjoy, you'll find something fun and interesting at the American West Heritage Center.
Be sure to check the website event calendar, as there are events happening all the time that turn a fun little museum into a full-fledged celebration of living history. From the Fall Festival to Baby Animal Days, if there is an event happening at the Heritage Center, then you definitely want to be there.
