  • Nice but not allot to see, or do. It was free. If your a palentologist this would be awesome
  • One of the best-preserved fossil collections in the country lies in a remote section of Western Nebraska. If stopping by, make sure to visit the museum first.
  • Hidden treasure, part of National Park system, incredible scenery, fascinating history, well deserving of a stop while in the neighborhood.
  • Not a bad place to visit but wasn't my favorite part of our trip.
  • Great museum with interesting prehistoric artifact displays. They also have an interesting Native American section as the former ranch owner was a friend of Red Cloud. They have hiking trails and a nice small bookstore. They have a picnic area, also.
