  • I took my niece to the museum on a cold rainy day. We walk in they were so excited. It's was warm and the place is full of natural artifacts.we looked at so many different types of creatures bones and arrow heads . it's set up in a maze form. Every room was a different type of era in time. The younger generation will be delighted with the the very ending room it's just best described as the fun room.
  • Visited here when I was a boy so 40 years later brought my girls here to see the museum. It has expanded and grown since the late 70's early 80's but in a good way. Very nice museum full of relics you only read about or see on TV. Here you can see it in real life and understand things you cant from looking at pictures or tv.
