  • Fun! Enthusiastic staff and great collection of interesting rocks and fossils. My son loved the real t-Rex head and touching dino bones.
  • Great collection of fossils and rocks. It is free as well and a good way to spend the afternoon.
  • Smaller than expected, but what I saw was interesting. Had a cute little gift shop, but nowhere to press pennies for souvenirs.
  • Great stop on the way to the Badlands. Lots of knowledgeable people to ask about geology and paleontology.
  • Great school incredible museum
