Fodor's Review

The Billy the Kid Museum houses 20,000 square feet of exhibits about the young scofflaw, as well as antique wagon trains, guns, household goods, and other artifacts of the frontier era. There's an interesting film about the Kid and the Lincoln County wars he was involved in. The museum is closed the first two weeks of January.
