We were there with a group of about 40. They had a introduction to the museum, then we were given a guided tour of the museum. Our guide was very enthusiastic and had a very good knowledge of the museum. The logging section was very interesting and well done. It's a museum, what can I say? If you like visiting... More

Very modern building, some activity areas for younger kids, and price was good $5 for adult, $4 for seniors and kids free. Which way to go to begin was not very clear and the girl at the desk was to busy getting back to her facebook game to answer the question, "Which way do I go?" So, go left first!

Every year this museum expands and it is getting better and better. The logging portion is outstandingly done. The quality of the exhibits tells the story of the local area and its people.

I found this Museum to be much more than I had expected. It was an integration of Historic information about the area utilizing several mock ups of historic living spaces and businesses and excellent displays of the local fauna and flora. The stuffed animals were life like in everyday and most of the species past and present were well represented.... More

Better suited to older children. My 6 yr old seemed to like the hands on portions. My 2 and 5 yr olds were wanting more to touch and feel, which is what I expected. I liked the scenes, like the wagon camp with the mercantile. I will definitely return as my children get older.

Douglas County should take great pride in a museum of this caliber. The staff is friendly and helpful. The exhibits are exceptional, along with live exhibits. They offer family and kid outings too. From the History buff to the curious observer - this is a must see!
