Surprisingly first rate natural history museum. Many fossils and complete dinosaur skeletons. There is also a room containing a large number of mounted big game animals. No fees

I spent a few hours roaming this place, taking pictures, and reading the information at the displays. Very informative and the people that work there were friendly and helpful willing to take a moment to answer questions. Go visit this if you can.
