It was okay, but not my favorite museum. Still, a good afternoon trip with good information. The Aztec/Mayan Gold collection was very interesting.

This museum looks small on the outside, but is big inside! Many exhibits and drawers full of arrowheads! Surprising how many displays there are in this museum. Very good rainy-day activity. We took young grandchildren and they found it interesting to the end.More
