“Interesting”

Dalton Gang Hideout
Ranked #1 of 3 things to do in Meade
Attraction details
Reviewed 30 April 2018 via mobile

Passing through Meade on the way home. We decided to stop and go through this. It is a small but very interesting museum. I learned of some Oklahoma hometown connections that I never knew about until this visit.

I don't consider myself a history buff, and yet history interests me. I found this to be a very educational stop.

I had never been to Meade, so as we were driving toward Liberal my husband started telling me about the Dalton Gang's Hide, it sounded great, so we took a side trip over to Meade. The gentleman working at the museum was super sweet even though we showed up 15 mins before they closed. We went in and looked around the museum and we went through the tunnel to the house and looked around there as well. You could spend a lot longer just reading all of the information they have on each Dalton family member. Totally worth a stop if you are in the area!

They also have clean bathrooms, a gift shop and it looks like they might put on some kind of shows there sometimes. We may check into that later! There is a $5 per person fee to go through the tunnel and into the house, it also has a museum that's on the 2nd floor of the gift shop.

really worth a visit. Knew the name but not much about them controvery to Jesse James,Wyatt Earp, Doc Holiday and so on.
It was so interesting to learn more about life and dead of the Daltons, their family and to visit the small but interesting museum. Mark also told a lot of interesting and funny things about the old days and the Wild West.

Great stop for fans of the old West. Interesting museum and dog friendly. The tunnel has been modernized, but that is understandable. Good information on the Dalton family. The docent was super friendly and informative. Don't miss the two headed calf and the Albino raccoon upstairs. Also nice display of guns and articles on other area history there. Worth a stop!

Buy tickets at the barn $5pp. The friendly docent gave us a brochure and gave us information about the complex. The complex encompasses the barn, a museum on the top floor of the barn, and a tunnel which you enter from the barn and walk through to the home. The home was originally owned by the sister and brother-in-law of the outlaw Dalton Gang brothers. Local folklore says the brothers took refuge from the law in their sister's home and used the tunnel as an escape route. It apparently hasn't been verified and may just be legend. There are sevearal displays about the Dalton family and the Dalton Gangs crimes and eventual deaths after a bank robbery in Coffeyville, KS-many are redundant. The house itself has a few rooms with displays, in great need of dusting and cleaning of dead flies as mentioned in other reviews. The museum has some interesting pieces related to cattle branding, guns, wildlife found in the area. The gift shop is small. All in all, the place looks a bit neglected. We spent about 45 min here.
