The Museum has educational displays featuring artifacts, photographs, antiques and collectibles portraying early ranch and farm life.

We host various annual events and exhibits such as the All-Valley Art Show that features the artwork from the Valley's Middle, Junior and Senior High Schools.
Museum displays show what an early mercantile or general store was like, along with a model US Post Office of years past, adjacent to a typical country grade school classroom designed around a valley town called Wayside, Colorado on the Maddox Ranch.
