  • Museum wasn't bad. The kids enjoyed the displays and loved the interactive topographical map. Staff left something to be desired. When we tried to pay to get in they acted like it was an inconvenience to have to help us.
  • What a great museum to have in Dickinson. I remember going here as a child and they have added some awesome exhibits. They also have interactive kid section.
  • Lots of great exhibits. Good for all ages. Loved the antique pioneer equipment display also.
  • Absolutely wonderful place. My father and I seen so many unique and unusual species. This place has a massive collection of both dinosaur fossils and precious stones. You are able to watch them work on newly discovered artifacts which really gives you an up close look at how it's done. The black light room is a must. Dont forget the gift shop. I was able to get really nice pieces of amethyst for under $10. The admission is very affordable. We also left a donation because this has to be one of the best museums we have ever visited.
  • Small but well laid out.
