This museum is a must-see for people of all ages. Not only for tourists, there are often groups of school children going through. The fossil room houses the largest and best collection of fossils I've ever seen... including a complete alligator (or crocodile) and trees!

Maybe it was me - but I had no interest in going to this museum figuring it would be small and uninteresting. However, the fossils on display - mostly found nearby - were stunning. Some of it was difficult to understand because there was not...More
