Bedridden Jesse gives an interview. Jesse James Wax Museum

It's a very small museum but interesting nonetheless. They said it would take 45 minutes, but I got through there with my 7 and 9 year old in about 20 minutes.

Jesse James Museum

Appears to be out of business. Was told owner retired.

There is an interesting place by KOA around the corner. Shop has chain saw carvings. Watch for train caboose in yard.

The museum is not out of business. It's only open on weekends after August, and is closed during the winter months.

Wax Jesse James. Jesse James Wax Museum

As a historian, Native Missourian and confirmed skeptic, I have always demanded proof when confronted with a conspiracy theory. The Jesse James Museum offers just that! Not only were the facts presented credible, but the man working the museum offered even more forensic evidence and plain old logic, proving to me that J. Frank Dalton and Jesse James were one in the same. This journey into the past is great for all ages and very affordable in these troubled economic times. I don't believe in Bigfoot, UFOs, or the Easter Bunny.....But I do truly believe that a conspiracy involving the assassination of another outlaw so Jesse could go free occurred and that Missouri Governor Crittenton was involved in the cover-up...I am now a TRUE BELIEVER.
