The museum is filled with lots of stuffed animals along with some great history information about Douglas County. It was worth the stop.

“very interesting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2013

when we walked in the front desk was very helpful ,they did not charge my teen admission ( I think they like kids to learn history!) I asked about the research room as I had some local connections even though the research room was not open till afternoon the lady asked me what names I was researching , wrote them down and looked them up later when she saw me again she told me what she found then led me to the research room and let me look at the documents ,then she made copies for me of the items at a very reasonable cost
We really enjoyed the museum displays this is a great museum for children and adults alike we spent about 3 hours
If you like museums and have the time I would recommend a stop here

“A hidden gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2013

This is a very worthwhile place to visit and bring the kids. There are natural history and local history exhibits, and they have a hands-on touch museum room for kids downstairs. It's cheap, and is never crowded. There is a good mix of interactive and traditional exhibits. I especially enjoy the museum's local historical photos.
