While small, this place definitely provides some interesting and varied exhibits. Particularly enjoyed the live animals (snakes, cockroaches, lizards, turtles, etc). Kept a 3 year entertained for almost an hour. The staff is very friendly. Definitely check it out if you are in the area and need to something interesting to do.

As we were trying to decide what attraction to visit, I told my husband that the reviews said it small but good and had some ship stuff. That was enough for him to want to go.

The Iron Clads exibit was very good and included a few relics from the periord. The fossils and frontier exibits were were interesting as well. This is a small museum.

The current set of exibits involving the Astin family, fossils, and many other things of local interest, is great. The living collections, especially the bee hive, are very interesting.
