Butch Cassidy Museum expands as visitor numbers increase

Associated Press

MONTPELIER, Idaho – The Butch Cassidy Museum in Montpelier, Idaho, is getting a face-lift.

KIFI-TV reported museum owner Radek Konarik said between 5,000 and 6,000 people visit the museum in the 100 days it is open from Memorial Day to Labor Day.

Because of that growth, the museum is expanding. One of the back rooms, which was used for storage, has been made into another room of the museum, where an 1800s-style jail has been added.

Konarik said another expansion he’s working on for next year is a history story wall.

Konarik said other expansions will come as time and money allow.

Konarik funds the museum out of pocket, with a few donations here and there.

The museum is the last standing bank that the infamous outlaw robbed.
