Fun place to occasionally visit if bored. My sons love the special exhibits that come in (especially the dinosaurs!), and I love the photography from the locals, but if none of that is there its honestly kinda boring. But they do have sparkling clean facilities and friendly staff! And we had some friends who got married there, it was perfect for a wedding!
The museum brings in a nice variety of traveling exhibits to match the great permanent exhibits and info on local history. Local histories can also be picked up at the bookstore. Don't forget to check out the river terrace garden. Beautiful spot to take in a SJC outdoor concert!
Stan the t-rex was awesome.
The FARMINGTON MUSEUM is a beautiful testament to the history and culture of Farmington. The Trading Post exhibit is fascinating and educational, and the art exhibit has a wonderful collection of artwork. The nature park outside overlooking the river is beautiful and peaceful. Entrance is free. Highly recommended.
Very nice displays
