Back to Iowa, and the Buffalo Bill Museum

Our tour of the Kinzenbaw tractor collection wasn't until Tuesday, so we had Monday to fill up with whatever fun we could find.  I had only one place I simply HAD to visit, and I knew that wouldn't take long:  Antique Archaeology, in LeClaire, Iowa, ninety miles due east of our motel in Williamsburg.  I checked the Internet for something else to do in LeClaire saw that the Buffalo Bill museum opened at 9 A.M. and was near Antique Archaeology, which opened at 10 A.M.

Honestly, the Buffalo Bill collection was sparce, since he left LeClaire at a young age.  However, the Lone Star Steamer (in service for 99 years) held our attention quite well.

The following little video is something I found on Youtube, some guy giving a little tour of the place.

Next entry will be about Antique Archaeology.  If nothing else comes from these entries, at least I am learning to properly spell the word "archaeology".

Thx for the tour


The Lone Star Steamer was quite a nice steamboat. Interesting, indeed.

If you ever get to Wyoming, you must see the Buffalo Bill Museum at the Center of the West in Cody, Wyoming. It is one of the best museums in the country, IMHO.

I love how you find such interesting places to go and things to see!

I have always thought that taking a steamboat ride would be fun. Nice they saved this one for others to see and thank you for sharing your pictures. So much history there now I'm wondering about the antique archeology. Sounds interesting.
