“A real Elasmosaur skeleton - Cool!”
Reviewed September 12, 2009

This is a small museum, as is to be expected in a small town, and the exhibits are of surprising high quality. They have the aforementioned elasmosaur, as well as a variety of fossils, a lung-fish (which my son thought was even cooler than the elasmosaur) and a nice first nations exhibit on the second level.
Admission is by donation -if you go, please support this nice little museum by donating appropriately.
