Not good value for money, its very small and of limited interest. probably more sutable for school trips than for adults, having read the discriptive we expected to see more on local things but the bigist part is dedicated to rock and mineral samples and general fosils. Would have liked to see as said lore local things

The fossils and rocks are also interesting. The is a chuck wagon and cotton exhibit discussing the Brazos Valley. There is also an area with aquariums with non-venomous snakes, turtles, spiders...

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. As we pulled up, there were LOTS of cars in the parking lot and a large building. My husband says...I thought you said this... More

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.
