This museum is a short visit, if you take kids. The exhibits are great but not very interactive. The museum itself is a beautiful building and a beautiful property. Very affordable.

This museum looks small from the outside. Don't be fooled. The amount of information packed inside is amazing. We have visited several other museums about the evolution of the earth . Also the native Indian tribes , but never so much information in one museum. There is just too much to mention , and too much to take in ,... More

Great little museum with an astounding display of the area's history. A must to appreciate the area's fantastic geologic and societal history. Easy to get to, and a charming walk down through a little gorge right on the property.
