  • This museum is very interesting, do not pay anything. At least not paid anything when I went. I took a picture in wooden canoe indigena, but unfortunately I lost the pictures. Plus it's nice to know anything of English, to teach him the story, especially in the indigenous environment, where they set up the maloca, etc. It's not too big, 1 hour maximum is enough. Below has an area for legal child. And before you go down you have views of the river.

  • Dinosaurs! Art! Love this place. They do are really cool beer tasting event in February too! Definitely a must see for the area!
  • The museum is awesome. If you've not been you need to go. It is small, but so excellent!
  • My parents came in from WI with my niece and nephew and spent the afternoon here. Admission prices were reasonable, exhibits were interesting, and they highly recommend it to others.
  • It's easier for me to learn about something I know very little in a small, well-run museum liike The Burpee. The dinosaur exhibits are spectacular. I even ended up going to help on the dino dig at Ekkalaka. 'ut
  • Fun location for someone needing to do an afternoon. Along the Rock River, and connected to a larger complex for learning and entertainment, the museum itself is a lot of fun.
