  • What an incredible place we stumbled on! We were just looking for a place to stretch our legs and take a quick break from a long drive, but what we found was a quaint, friendly gem that had all the charm in the world. There is a small, but neat collection of fossils, rocks, shark teeth, and various other treasures, however, it was the staff that made our experience so wonderful. This is the perfect road-trip stop for the whole family. The whole town has this “Radiator Springs” vibe, and you definitely shouldn’t pass this one by.
  • This is a very interesting place. One half of if is dinosaur fossils mostly of an aquatic nature. The curator really knew her stuff and really knew how to keep my girls (8 and 11)engaged. The other half was devoted 19th and early 20th century dioramas depicting life in western Kansas. There is also some lovely artwork and a Remington reproduction that is very worthy. There is also a respectable collection of rock; geodes, and gypsum and others.
