Replica cliff dwellings.

National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum

This place is massive! Plan on a couple hours minimum to get a somewhat complete tour. 200k sq/ft of indoor exhibits, and another 100k sq/ft of outdoor displays. Vast amounts of western and Native American art and artifacts. Outside showcases various living accommodations throughout history. Truly a wonderful and exhaustive representation of our native and western heritage.
