“Small discovery”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 13, 2013

On the Webb High school campus, it's a small but very well set up museum. There are some interactive areas for kids and some very interesting archeological finds and history.

“Can be Easily Overlooked”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2012

I did not even know this place existed before the day of my visit. It is small but information is presented so very well. I had Paleontology in college to qualify for a minor in Natural Sciences, so seeing so many of the things here brought back wonderful memories or that class and our digs and fossil hunts. The artifacts are displayed to their best advantage; and the dinosaur foot print is a real draw for kids. Remember that this museum is on a school site, so check before going; but it is well-woth seeing.

“History and Memories in the Making”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2012

Loved this place when my daughter was little. Family Day is best because it's free and there are lots of relevant and fun activities. My teen still remembers digging for dinosaurs and making a model. The museum has a great collection of artifacts as well.

My children visited this museum with their school. It is very small but the guides presented it well and made it fun. Everything is geared towards palentology and the have a repleca of a dinosaur footprint the kids can sit it; they loved it.

“WOW!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2012

This museum is on the grounds of the Webb school and is only open certain hours so check before you go. It is small but has some very nice exhibits for a private museum. They also offer educational classes and summer school mini classes here.
