  • Decent place to kill some time if you need to get out of the car for a bit. The river movie was pretty cool. I ended up purchasing a copy for home.
  • I really wasn't expecting a museum of this quality in Green River, but it's intelligent, informative, elegantly designed and well kept up. The talking animatronic characters are charmingly cheesy but the content is great. The artifacts and reproductions are great and the topic interests me a lot.
  • Very interesting exhibits surrounding all time frames of human habitation in the area, as well as some incredible historic boats...very inspiring video for river runners...gift shop
  • Very complete, small museum with lots of original artifacts. Worth a visit!
  • Surprisingly good museum for such a small town. Good movie, entire dinosaur fossil, and lots of information. It's worth the mile drive of the highway.
