Nice place to take my boys for a couple hours. My 8 y/o really enjoyed the Mastodon and the large bird exhibit.

Small museum, but loaded with charm and very interactive for children. This is the type of museum to bring you children too as it will keep them interested, and it is not too big to overwhelm them. Great exhibits. I loved the history.

The tired displays haven't changed. This is the largest county in the United States. It is rich with history. The fact that unless you're a bird or butterfly lover there is little to see and do is perplexing to me. There are a couple of historical displays and of course the children's hands on (small building in back) exhibit. Unless... More
