Really interesting historical displays. Entrance fee is $5. Wide open spaces, masked staff, very small crowd. Really good place to visit during Covid. Will go back! more »

The renovations they've made to the museum itself are so amazing!! The new exhibits they had when I were interactive and fun. I don't think I've felt this way about a museum since I lived in Colorado. Walking through connected me with the history of the region and I loved how there was a metate that you could grind corn with. Hit close to home.
Great experience, the kids loved the animals! Only complaint was that the play area didn't have enough for the little kids 1 to 2 years old. Staff was very helpful and nice and the facility was well kept and up to date.
