Bring your kids to learn about science, history and dinosaurs. It's great for an hour, or two. Brand new and nice. Some Saturdays are Open House.

This was a fun paleontology museum. It is 2 floors and gives a brief history of earths history and has some very interesting fossils and dinosaur replicas. Very easy to do in an hour.

My kids and I came here for a birthday party and they had a great time. It was informative, fun and we even got cool hats to take home. The museum is the perfect size and I recommend it to anyone interested in paleontology
