It was okay. Probably would be best for young children or adults who want to read all the small print.

Walking around the village, I came across this tiny, yet very well organized, information-filled and interesting science center. The staff was friendly and helpful, and all of the main info was very accesible.

not very big but nice little place. Can also take you on hikes for flowers or ice age discoveries. The people were helpful in answering questions and gave lots of details. The morning flower hike and afternoon ice age hike are free.

This is the story of the town's find of a mastadon excavation at a local reservoir. Its an interesting story and a great place to visit with kids.

We like to bring visitors here so they can learn a bit about the phenomenal find in our backyard. They have some interesting displays, pictures, and the people are very friendly when asked questions.

This is a nice little museum that we love to visit. This year (3/2017) the kids could fill out a sheet, answering questions about the exhibits in return for stickers. If they didn't get the question right, the docent made them go back and review...More
