  • Excellent quality museum. Our kids (6 year old boy and 8 year old girl) really enjoyed it. Beautiful displays!  more »
  • Exceptional for a small town museum! The collection is amazing and well displayed. Truly a must-visit if you’re in the Bethel area.  more »
  • Great experience for grade school age kids.
  • A fun place to visit. It is essentially a jewelry store with a small museum on site. But... They have a cool collection of gems (and a large asteroid) and its a fun and educational place to visit. I took my kids and they had plenty of fun checking out the displays!
