Also, there is rock display, including the fluorescent rock collection that glow under UV lights. The admission is by donation. If you are in the area, I definitely recomeng... More

This museum is wonderful and very informative. We really enjoyed ourselves. This was a holiday weekend, so there was also ice cream and cake for everyone. We were come back again when we have more time to browse.

Really a great little museum - they seem to be adding new exhibits every week or so. The rock collections are amazing and well worth looking at. Offers a great tribute to the area and it's rich history

This is a must visit for everyone whether you are a tourist or live here. The displays are always changing and new older things added along with more info on the valley. It has greatly improved over the past two years and getting better all the time. You will be amazed at what you did not know about Princeton and... More

Too bad this little museum isn't open more! We did plan ahead so staff could help us look in some old newspapers about a great uncle who had a shop in Princeton in 1918. Robin found the info and photo copied it for us. (Thanks, Robin) We wandered the museum and they had a bit of everything displayed. Most interesting... More

Nice small museum with a variety of historical items. We liked the geology exhibit the best: fossils, iridescent stones and geodes. They even had a secret room with a black light. Cool!

Do visit this Museum if you are in town. This place is educational well preserved. The fossils and early age telephone and Native history is something we should all be proud off and relish
