    Fascinating collection! Wonderful personal tours, we often take out of town guests here and there is always positive remarks. Lots to see but not overwhelming for kids.  more »

    We took the kids there this past weekend and had a blast! Ended up getting the family membership because there is so much to see. The owner and staff were awesome and very helpful. Loved the little gift shop and the scavenger hunts even though we didn't finish them because we got distracted by everything in there. Can't wait to go back. Definitely worth checking out!!!

    This place is great! My 10yo son loves it here, no matter how many times we go, u always find something new or fun. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. Price is decent for what you get. There is also a cute little souvenir shop at the entrance with all kinds of neat stones and fossils. A must see for sure.

    We had an absolutely great visit. Our most knowledgeable young university guide took us on our personal walk. He interacted so well with us and kept my grandchildren interested and amazed. He answered all our questions and we had lots. The museum itself is wonderful

    Great little hole in the wall private museum of the natural history sort. Mostly taxidermied animals, fossils, rocks, crystals and gems. Met the owner and he was incredibly enthusiastic about his collection. Was a real treat to be shown around by him.
