  • This is a wonderful museum that does a great job of telling the history of this part of the world. It includes agriculture, early life in small towns through its Boomtown examples. A very nice restaurant and gift shop complete the experience.
  • An amazing place! It looks just like the main street of a 1910 era town. You can go into the buildings where there are displays and info about the time. There is a cafe that has excellent and inexpensive food. It's a great place for a family outing.
  • Went for the quantum physics exhibit. Very cool. Boomtown is pretty awesome too. Very interesting to see what things were like back in the day.
  • Such a cool place! Entrance fee was reasonable and there was so much to see! We came for the Game Changers exhibit but were pleased to see so many other things as well!
  • Always something awesome here! Went for the iconic Boomtown tour, and then the Game Changers exhibit. Spectacular as usual!
