On our way down to Mexico we detoured a bit to go see this museum. It was definitely worth it. The staff are friendly and the museum is laid out nicely.

We are yearly members and visit a few times a year. The museum changes out one of the main exhibits on a regular basis. The "Tough By Nature" exhibit they have now was fun to spend some time in.

We liked the variety of exhibits and subject material. Really liked the pioneer historic exhibits and dinasour museum area. Planetarium show very educating and relaxing. The western women art exhibit very good also.
