Patee House Museum, St. Joseph, Mo

Wow!! what a museum.  This museum is in an 1858 national historic landmark pioneer hotel that was headquarters for the pony express.  The building served as the provost marshal's office for the Union during the Civil war.  The museum shows the development of the American West and is listed as one of America’s top ten Western Museums in the True West Magazine.  We spent 3 hours there and could have taken a lot more time.  Cost:  seniors $4
