This is a wonderful free outing for any age group, or for a family. It is full of the 'touchy, feely' exhibits that kids love (animal pelts included!) , dioramas or local animals and birds, complete with matching habitats. EXCELLENT rock exhibits, including a 'dark closet' where rocks are glowing in the dark (with help from a black light. I totally loved that and I am not a kid!
There is plenty of (free) information available regarding local spots to camp, to go and explore. A lot of information about trails in the area for walking, riding horses, off road vehicles or just exploring in general.
Despite what we 'usually think; this is a terrific example of your 'tax dollars at work." the people are very intelligent, friendly and more than happy to share their espertise.
