    What they had on display was fun and interesting to learn, however it is very small. 3 rooms of exhibits... dinosaurs, exploration room and fire history. That was it. Not even 1/1000th what their website boasted they had. When I asked, I was informed the website is talking about their private collection, not their public display. Had I know that, I would have saved my time and money.

    Small display of fossils. Disappointing not to have more displayed. More if a play area for school kids rather than a museum. Expected to see both plant and animal fossils. Models appeared to be 20 to 50 % oversized from real fossils found at John Day Oregon. Would have been nice to have seen local fossils found in southeast idaho.

    This has always been a great museum. They constantly work to improve the exhibits and make it interesting. I would go here weekly as a kid and loved it every time. If you've never been before, it's definitely worth the visit.
