  • We came all the way from Hampton just to visit and it was absolutely worth every second of the trip. I highly recommend that this museum (especially at Christmas time) be on your bucket list!!
  • My husband and I decided to explore some of the more local museums and sites over the weekend. We were greatly disappointed when we arrived here and discovered, after calling to check the hours, that the museum was closed. I have been here a few times and on occasion I have found the hours to be unpredictable. The hours are listed on the door, online, and also on their answering service. It's a great place full of rich history and it has a very good layout. The gift shop is also eye catching and holds some unique treasures. The staff has always been polite and helpful. However, I would not recommend making a trip here unless you call and speak with someone to make sure they are indeed open. Do not settle for the answering service's listed hours.
  • Interesting history, especially learning about the Salt Mine history and Wooly Mammoth fossil finds.
  • Very informative. Super friendly staff. Amazing history.
  • Very informative. Lots of artifacts and educational. We will visit again.
