    Great collection of petrified wood and other fossils. Unfortunately, the samples are not labeled correctly. Mineral samples are missing chemical formulas, and fossilized woods are missing species data. Until this is corrected, this place is just a gallery, not a proper museum. The benefactor, Herbert Zuhl, is a nice guy and has had an interesting, storied life.

    This place is a gem (no punt intended). Easy access, free parking, free admission. If you have even only one hour to spend, do yourself a favor and go visit this astonishing museum. Probably the best display of fossilized woods but italso feature breathtaking minerals and fossiles. A must visit.
