Western Heritage Museum

Another cold day and another attempt to be somewhere warm.
Inside I was mildly successful although they could have turned the heat up even more.

 It was a small little museum filled with lots of old stuff, 
well after all that's what museums are for.

Ah but again I was plagued with a hoard of second graders in attendance.
I will give them a better score than those at the dinosaur museum as they were better controlled much to the credit of the museum staff conducting their tour. 

This old organ I thought photo-worthy

for the back was open to view.  
I bet this organ with its vacuum tubes produced a better sound than modern day electronic models.

I was intrigued in the collection of bows and arrows made by the local Ute Indians.  
The kids ran me off and I intended to go back and take a picture but of course forgot to do so.

Nice that someone collected this stuff. Best to do it on the spot itself.

Always interesting to see what one can collect.

I love wandering around small museums. Did beans sit in the camper and wait for you patiently while you were in there?
