Exhibits are interesting but lighting is poor and many explanations are missing. Interactive exhibits often do not work. Student guides on weekends are available. The top floor is focused on the donated collection of a noted scientist. In all, this museum gives you a basic overview of the geologic riches in this province and the expertise of university scientists.

It's small and would be very good for people with younger children who want to get up close. Accross the road is the petrified forest recreated for kids and... More
