    It was a lot smaller than I had anticipated. A lot of the exhibits were casts and not actual fossils. It was still cool to see, but there's not much there

    I was lucky enough to be able to stop here for the Ithaca Loves Teachers event. My colleague and I really enjoyed ourselves while walking through time. I will definitely visit again and will recommend my students visit as well!

    Really pretty grounds in the summer! Also there is an exhibit of these weird prehistoric dioramas from the Smithsonian in the 50s where they point out all the inaccuracies, so if you're into weird science irony that's worth checking out. I think the exhibits overall need a little updating though.
