I learned a few things I didnt know. It's worth a 10 minute stop into this compact litte museum on campus. Make sure you try and throw a pine cone into the dino's mouth outside the entrance.

Lots of fun for anyone interested in geology and/or paleontology. It’s free and open to the public. The only downside is that it’s on campus and there’s no nearby visitor parking.

The full size dinosaur skeleton is well worth seing as well as the T Rex replica outside. All of the other exhibits are interesting, Children, especcially love to see the dinosaurs.
