When you enter the Frontier Relics you will find a unique shop combining antiques & artisan items for sale. We will take you back in time with our old time candy shop and vintage library. We offer a good selection of furniture and household decor items. Many of our Artisan items are exclusive to Frontier Relics and can't be found anywhere else. These items also can be purchased through our online store and shipped worldwide.

Frontier Auto Museum is preserving the history and nest-alga of the automotive & transportation industry through the private collection of Leon & Jeff Wandler. Leon started this collection because of his love for Hudson cars, which is the main focus of the museum today. His son Jeff and him started adding gas pumps and neon signs to the collection 25 years ago. Leon passed in 2005 and Jeff continued adding to the collection. Everything was held in a private shop in the country until 2015 when Jeff & his daughter Briana purchased a Ford dealership built in 1949 in Gillette, WY. They decided it was the perfect home to share it with the public. The museum was opened in 2016. Since then they have purchased the building next door and combined them to expand the collection, which is 12,000 sq ft and still growing today. They have recreated an old main street town with a complete general store, hotel, barbershop and gas station that is the entrance to the museum. From there you enter into the main showroom that showcases 9 cars. There are other cars throughout the museum. Currently we are building a mining museum that will open in June 2019. We will also be adding a Sinclair gas station that is expected to open Summer of 2020. We are continuing our Grandfathers love for early Americana and hope you come enjoy it with us! Adult's $10.00, Service Professionals $8.00, Seniors(65+) $8.00, Groups (5 or more) $8.00, Children 12 & under FREE.
