  • This is a nice little museum that is free to the public. You only need 30 minutes to an hour to peruse the exhibits, but it gives you a good introduction to geology and how it relates to the history of the area. Don't forget to remove your shoes at the door.
  • My partner and I went to the museum to learn something new and we did. It is very exciting to see the variety of mineral sources that the Earth has. Other than that, it is nice to see the local history showcased in the museum. I like that each section has different coloring to inform the visitors that we are entering a different area. One thing to note is that the entrance fee is free. Overall, we had a good time.
