We were pleasantly surprised by this museum. It has substantial info and displays on the old west, pre historic animals, weaponry, and the coal mining industry. There is no share, but a donation is always appreciated.

This museum has something for adults and children alike. There's no admission charge, but you can donate if you wish. There's information on local industry, historical exhibits, and even a caboose that you can explore.
