The museum showcases more than 500 handmade sculptures representing American heroes from all walks of life--from cowboys, soldiers, and firefighters, to aviators and golfers.

  • Great llace to visit. The museum is an undescribable experience. It includes miniature scenes from his life that actually come to life. A must do if in the Old Colorado City area.  more »
  • When I first read about it I thought it was going to be pretty hokey, but it wasn’t, it was just great. The sculptures were very well done and depicted real life scenes.  more »
  • Awesome place! The 3D recreation of the olden times is mind blowing! Michael has such a vivid imagination. His talent and vision with this is absolutely spectacular! Steve and Laura were absolutely awesome in explaining how Michael put this together and how he came up with the concept. If you enjoy looking at the past, you'll be amazed at how much detail this exhibit has. You'll truly get a glimpse of the past.
  • Magic town inside the museum is amazingly detailed. Definitely worth the admission and you can take as little or as much time as you like to go through it. There is a scavenger hunt available which can be a fun activity for all in the family.
