Loads of unusual stuff in here we cancelled an outdoor visit elsewhere as it was pouring with rain and it was well worth it

This is a very interesting museum with a variety of displays. There are 3 floors covering everything including dinosaurs, rock displays. Roman coins, Egyptian mummies, presidents, world war 1 & 2, Wizard of Oz and military uniforms from around the world. Admission is about nine bucks per adult. Thought I might spend an hour here but was there 2.5 hours.

I was looking to waste some time and decided to visit the museum. Turns out this was not a waste of time, but a great way to spend the afternoon. From dinosaurs to ancient Egypt to modern culture, they have it all. I had a limited time to visit, but could have easily spent 2 days here.

I thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the Museum. It was well laid out so it felt like you were continuously discovering different sections. I loved the interactive pieces they have throughout the Museum. We didn't take our children on this visit but we definitely will. The amount and variety of displays was surprising and made for a really great time.

I wanted to see "Ivan" a T-Rex, so I drove up from Pensacola, FL. Max Stuever, a volunteer, had the most interesting and fun stories. So glad I made the drive!

Our group included adults and kids aged 11, 12 & 13. Everyone enjoyed the exhibits and learned something. The kids LOVED the puppets in the little kids' area.

My son is into the history of wars and really enjoyed this exhibit. He was so glad we made the time to take him there. He even learned some things that are not taught in the classroom!! We will be going back to visit again!
