With convenient hours and friendly staff, this museum makes it the best museum in the city. And one of the best parts - it's free!

I visited here many years ago and had always meant to return. I finally made it and it was great! The whole museum has been upgraded since the early '90s. Very interesting local tidbits and one of the best rock/ mineral displays in the region....More

This museum has a little mix of everything. The displays are incredibly interesting, containing stuffed creatures and information that one may have not known before. All for donation! Great place for a day visit or field trip.

There are many exhibits that are educational and informative. Well worth the time to visit by your self, with a family, or schedule a group tour.
