Western Wednesdays – Outlaws and Lawmen of the Wild West

The history of outlaws and lawmen of the Old West is the origin of many American tales. In this program, children will learn about the exciting past through stories of heroic sheriffs, drifting outlaws, livestock thieves, and the origin of the wanted poster. Children will see an expansive collection of authentic Old West sheriffs’ badges, enjoy a variety of exciting activities, and search for “stolen” saddle bags hidden in the museum gallery.

Activities recommended for children ages 6 to 14. Families are welcome to drop in between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. Children can choose which activities they’d like to participate in, and the order in which to enjoy them. All activities are self-guided by the children’s accompanying adult(s).

$5 per person for adults and children ages six and older. Free for children 5 and under.

RSVP requested. Please email education@scottsdalemuseumwest.org with the number of guests attending.
