    This is a small but worth the stop. If you are staying in Bakersfeild and want something that will keep the kids busy for an hour or so .. this will work. We went on $2 day, so worth it.  more »

    Incredible collection of shark teeth and fossils from the Bakersfield area (plus other artifacts from all over the world). Helps you identify which fossils you have if you dig in the Bakersfield area. Turns out I have a tooth from a hippo-like animal. The curator, John, greeted us and was super friendly and helpful. The customer service here is unbelievable, top notch.
