Fun little place to escape during the weekend or the summer. It's free, lots of fun for the kids and air conditioned so you can escape the summer heat. There's a rotating exhibit that changes every few months so the kids don't get bored.

This museum is a community treasure! Permanent displays are interesting and interactive. Traveling display of dinosaurs is awesome . If visiting only for dinosaurs, call first to see if still displayed. Oh and it is free , with donations greatly appreciated.
