  • A real nice place for nature and science. Dinosaurs, reptiles, anything that can walk, creep or crawl you can fin here in a state of prehistoric scene. Very interesting. Very well done. 
  • Thus let us go to the nearby Museum of Nature and Science, why does it say that is free ... but above all we have to go to a restroom! It will be a delightful surprise, small but interesting, with pet caskets and snakes in the area. There is a large collection of fossils and minerals, well exposed and with all the information. Admission is by donation, and we willingly leave exit 10 $.

  • I great place to see if you have some free time. We saw all three places which were free. We still donate some money to this wonderful place. We really appreciate it. Thanks for having this place open. We really enjoyed the history and culture and knowledge your town shared with us. Thanks
