  • It was nice. I went for an anthropology lecture for school and it was very interesting. They do have restrooms and a small gift shop as well. Decent parking. Clean. Worth checking out if you are ever in the area.
  • Really neat little museum. The dinosaur and tree exhibits are my favorite. I take my young clients here for community outings and they’ve always had a blast. I definitely recommend checking out.
