“Hubbard Museum of Natural History”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

Small museum (about the size of a school gym) with interesting exhibits and a friendly staff. Inexpensive-- only about $6.00 for adults.
Many horse-related items.
Outdoor exhibit with larger-than-life horses running through a "landscape."
Has a special interactive for children. Nice gift shop.

“Lots of Local History+ Statuary”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

Right near the track. Lots of western exhibits and antique clothing/artifacts. Exterior garden with horse statue is good photo op. B?W photos and background history is fascinating. Not a waste of money/time

“Excellent and enthusiastic docents”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2012

The exhibits are definitely interesting and well done--although not always museum quality, but this is made up for by the well-versed and enthusiastic docents. It looks to be a good museum for families, and we were impressed with the children's "active" area.
