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!

This is a very worthwhile place to visit and bring the kids. There are natural history and local history exhibits, and they have a hands-on touch museum room for kids downstairs. It's cheap, and is never crowded. There is a good mix of interactive and traditional exhibits. I especially enjoy the museum's local historical photos.
