The Museum is tyndalstone construction. I love looking for the fossils in the stone. Maybe with a book I could identify them.

I would have to give the same answers as already provided by other reviewers. There is the Inn at the Forks that could be checked out at well.

I believe it is Wednesday evening. Best to call first. Anything free can be subject to change. Well worth it! Parking is free on weekends.
