Small Town Treasure

A great museum with lots of local Norwegian and German treasures. Also, so many cool arrowheads and fossils. A must see if you are in Clifton or traveling through.

This is a beautiful museum with volunteers and workers who quite evidently enjoy their job. It just underwent some renovations and it's quite interesting. Many, many items to look at. You will not be disappointed.

This is a nice little museum. We got a full tour of the place by a nice gentleman working here. Worth a visit if you're in this area.

I visited the Bosque Museum in late December and found it to be very nicely designed and interesting. The focus of the first section of the museum is on the discovery of the prehistoric Horn Shelter Man in the Bosque area.

As a Norwegian I was amazed to find this very nice little museum in the heart of Texas. Driving the back roads from Dallas in the direction of Austin we more or less stumbled upon this place. On top of everything it was supposed to be closed on the day we came by, but was opened to a busload of... More
