Don't need to go to Egypt to view this mummy! This late period mummy is one of two right in the Richmond area. Fully intact with an x-ray photo as well. The giant sloth and giant beaver skeletons were pretty awesome too! Great little museum for the whole family.

Small but super-fun museum on Earlham campus. Varied exhibits and knowledgeable staff. If nothing else, you must go see the giant sloth. You will not regret it.

It was really on the small side but overall a very nice place. The fossil collection there was the best exhibit they have there. But there were lots of little things for children to do and planetarium shows are given upon request. And it was completely free!

This small museum is a small child's heaven! So interactive ! Very clever presentations of bugs and critters! Loved the reptiles! Can't say enough about how much we enjoyed this experience. I think what I loved most was the bucket of small toy replicas of the creatures that were in skeletal form....example...a toy mastodon, a toy beaver....so that the child... More

Just had a great time. Can't beat free. Located on a small charming college campus. My son loved looking at the snakes in the lower level.

I took my nieces (ages 6 and 7) for a museum visit. I hadn't been to the museum in close to 15 years and I can't say much has changed though they did have a few hands on activities for children which kept the girls entertained. The student (the museum is staffed by college students) was very accommodating and friendly.... More

What a great pop in this was, both awe-inspiring and educational. Do not miss it, for the kid in you or the kids you care about.

Joseph Moore is located on the lovely Earlham College campus. My young son loves coming here to see the dinosaur bones and the Egyptian mummy! Nice displays of Indiana wildlife as well. The museum is small and hours are a little sporadic, but worth a visit.
