    The guide, Mike, was very interesting and made the past come alive. They had an astounding variety of antiquities. It was very well laid out. Most of the buildings were climate controlled. We appreciated the staff and got to meet the founder,a very interesting archiologist. Would definitely recommend.

    Nice museum and knowledgeable tour guide. Was tickled to learn the owner grew up in Nebraska.
