  • Great little museum on the plains regarding the local landscape. There is an earthcache here if you do geocaching as a hobby. The movie presentation is fantastic! 
  • The immersion theater is really neat, and so is the weather dome in the main area. The rest is only semi interesting. I would also say its more for kids. There are a lot of them running around playing...  more »
  • My husband and I have been wanting to check this place out for over a year now, and today we just got in the car and drove there. It was a bit smaller than I anticipated, but is very, very well done. ...  more »

  • Great local museum! Informative and engaging exhibits in a beautiful space.
  • Went on a field trip with my son's class (3-5 yr old). Great for a mixed group of ages, enough entertainment for younger children and education for older children. Kept them entertained for 2+ hours, nice place!
  • A great outing for your children to learn and play. Downstairs is mostly for children who can read & there's a small theater for a 15 min showing, but upstairs there's a huge play area, engaging/ educational displays, and interactive things to do that will keep kids busy for a while.
  • My boys enjoyed the dinosaur exhibit. The exhibit was a bit small, but very neat and interactive. The children's area has several activities they enjoyed.
  • The video on the first floor was excellent, it gave a great background on the history of the surrounding area. They had two traveling exhibits upstairs that were lacking in interest and felt like they were missing something. It is worth going to just to see the video and the first floor permanent exhibit.
