A good way to spend time with the kids. Getting to know our past and realize how time has change. There is a $6 dollar fee to get in cash or check.

We visited this museum on a docent-guided tour and learned more than we could believe about this field. Excellent exhibits and stories. Good for the whole family, except very young children. Lots of hands-on exhibits to entertain all. A rare find.

This is a very small museum, located on a small campus of a private school, so don't expect too much. It took us about an hour to go through everything. I... More

If you have an interest in paleontology you have to come here. Even though it is on a private high school campus it is very well done and a great intorduction to the subject.

Even people in Claremont don't know about this hidden gem. It has a wonderful combination of interactive and elementary information for the beginner and more advanced information. It's well laid out, visually pleasant and very informative.
