We have heard great things about the museum and how it's a great museum for kids. The day my wife and I visited there was a group of young kids and the museum employees looked like they were doing a great job engaging the kids. Parents and kids alike will enjoy this museum.

We loved the Tate! You will love it too if you have any interest in dinosaurs, fossils, or rocks. My initial reaction upon entering was “Oh, it is just one big room”. But that one big space was packed with wonderful displays and excellent explanatory signs. There were even drawers filled with things you could touch – bones, arrowheads, rocks,... More

This is a small museum but it has some pretty neat fossils and prehistoric bones. The Mammoth is really sweet to see up close.

This is a small museum but there is quite a bit to see. They have a huge mammoth skeleton and a T Rex skull along with many smaller items such as fossils and minerals. They have a children's play area that little ones will enjoy. The museum is free of charge.

Great display. Friendly staff. My kids were very excited to be able to touch and feel some of the exhibits. It was a great way for them to connect.

Grandchildren loved this place. They had never seen anything like before they had to get as many pictures as they could to take home my 92 year old mom loved it too

This museum is not too big, but is jam-packed with a variety of fossils and rocks. The displays are nicely set up, and volunteers are available if you have any questions. Worth a visit if you are a fossil fan.
