Nice little museum. They have little lizards "hidden" throughout for kids to count, and report back with their final amount. Great idea to keep kids interested! My 6yo enjoyed it.

The displays are well done and chronical the first people and those that came after. They have a nice collection of artifacts. The lady at the desk was extremely pleasant and informative. Worth the time to stop and walk through it.

Must-see and it's air conditioned!!! After a day of looking at rocks, stop inside for some great historical exhibits including an exhibit on barbed wire! I know you don't think much about barbed wire but what would we do without it? Livestock would be everywhere!...More
