This was a fun paleontology museum. It is 2 floors and gives a brief history of earths history and has some very interesting fossils and dinosaur replicas. Very easy to do in an hour.

My kids and I came here for a birthday party and they had a great time. It was informative, fun and we even got cool hats to take home. The museum is the perfect size and I recommend it to anyone interested in paleontology

A good way to spend time with the kids. Getting to know our past and realize how time has change. There is a $6 dollar fee to get in cash or check.

We visited this museum on a docent-guided tour and learned more than we could believe about this field. Excellent exhibits and stories. Good for the whole family, except very young children. Lots of hands-on exhibits to entertain all. A rare find.
