  • Really fantastic Jurassic and Cretaceous fossils. There is no need to qualify that statement with "for a small museum", either; they would not be out of place in any large natural history museum. Add to that the extensive "plains life" exhibition in the same building and it's completely worth stopping in.
  • Enjoyed seeing the fossils and photographs from Sternberg's excavations. The historical artifacts from the frontier stations were also very interesting. Read the Life of a Fossil Hunter book online and would like to find an original print of this book.
  • For being a small museum it was great info. Dinosaur fossils old pictures, objects and a friendly smilem
  • Very nice place to take the family
  • It was actually a cute little museum with some very interesting artifacts collected from the Fick family and other donators. We just happened upon it and it was a nice little detour from all the driving we had to do.
