  • If your into rocks fossils, petrified wood, and minerals this is the place to go. Is not a big museum which actually enjoy cause it seems more promising looking at the rocks and my 3 year old son...

  • We really enjoyed visiting this museum. Amazing collection.
  • The most extensive exhibit of petrified wood you will likely ever encounter. Many wonderful and unusual fossils to appreciate including a complete baby mammouth a clutch of dinosaur eggs and more. Quite a few mineral specimens and crystals of all sorts. Well worth your time to examine and share this free to the public exhibit with friends and family.
