Expensive for what you get- would be worth it if it was free but as it is $6.50 would advise passing. One small room and not much to look at, plus Jessie James isn’t even confirmed to have been there.

This was an ok visit. Seeing the interior bank was interested to me since I worked as a teller for many years. The building is well preserved and a good place to stretch your legs.
