“Tiny”
Reviewed August 16, 2012

Very small.... 3 minutes to see. Not quote sure it qualifies as a museum. Staff member just stands around playing on computer.

“A 5 Foot Beaver?”
Reviewed August 13, 2012

Wow, the things you learn on vacation. I knew Asia north was attached to North American once upon a time but I had no idea of the finer details. This museum dives well into that. They even have a mumified (ice and mud preserved hide) about 26 000 years old. My favorite find was that Beavers were one about 5 feet tall with much bigger teeth than now. A must see!

An excellent exhibit that sheds a lot of light on the huge changes our planet has withstood since the beginnings of time. Great for adults and kids alike.

“Great value! A must see.”
Reviewed August 2, 2012 via mobile

Great education for low price. Loved the massive skeletons. This is a very high class, big city tourist draw with small city prices. The movie is wonderfully informative, but the music is such that if you are tired, you will snooze. Very peaceful. Perfect for all ages.

“Important and informative”
Reviewed July 30, 2012

The archeology done in this area is of vast importance in this day and age of climate change--why was this area glacier free? Lots of large skeletons nicely done.
