The artifacts on display were of good quality and very interesting. Yes, the museum is small, but so is the town of Dickinson. The docents are outstanding and I learned a great deal.

It was more fun for me because I got to touch actual dinosaur bones. Lots of minerals too and I love rocks. What can I say. Its small but well worth a stop.
